Vegetarian Tortilla Soup

A great soup for lunch from epicurious.com. I sometimes add more spices, and sometimes I also create a garnish by frying corn tortilla strips with some non-stick cooking spray. You may top with fat-free or lowfat sour cream, and cilantro. Sometimes I also add some shredded muenster or other shreddable cheese on top. Enjoy!

This was great! I had to use a can of fire roasted tomatoes instead of fresh and it still came out great. I think the zucchini was a little more than a cup because I used a whole small one. I will make this often. Thanx!
