“People have offered me their firstborn children for this recipe; it is simple, easy to make, and delicious. It's also vegan if you don't add the cheese at the end. If you prefer a more spicy soup, add a dash or two of hot sauce before serving.” - by DSYLVAN

"Okay, does no one else think that 3 cans of diced chile peppers makes this soup waaay too hot?!?! And I thought I liked my food spicy...apparently not! Other than that, we really like this recipe. ..." See moreMy changes: cut down on cumin (to 2 tsps.), added the can of black beans for protein, drained the corn, used 3 8oz. boxes of veggie broth and 2 cups of water (makes it cheaper to make and you don't notice the difference!). We also added a squeeze of lemon juice at the end (didn't have any lime), but I will definitely add more lime juice (1/3 cup of fresh squeezed) next time along with less chile peppers! This has the potential to be a great recipe, though, so I gave it 4 stars. Loved using the frozen peppers/onions...didn't know that product existed until this recipe! PS--I made it again using the lime juice and it was great! Also, substituted 28 oz. can of petite diced tomatoes for the crushed ones and we liked that better, too. I think we have finally found our veggie tortilla soup recipe!"
"Love it! I used 2 T. of cumin, 2 cans of chopped green chiles, 2 14.5 oz. cans of diced tomatoes (one plain, one with sweet onion), a 32 oz. container of organic vegetable broth and 14 oz. of water w..."

Everyone loved it and my husband had some at 10 pm because he couldn't get the taste out of his head. Great as is, but when you serve it with Chile Lime Tortilla Chips and the avocado and cheese, it takes it to a whole new level. Thanks for a great recipe!"
"(*UPDATED 11/26/11*: This is by far the best recipe I've ever made. It continues to be my most popular recipe and receives raves from all who try it, and is my standby for pot luck suppers and dinner ..." See moreparties. It is incredibly forgiving and always scrumptious!) I've been craving vegetarian tortilla soup for almost a year now....and I found it! The soup really is so simple and DELICIOUS! The cumin is key to the authentic tortilla soup flavor. I added some chopped fresh mushrooms (just because) at the last five minutes with the corn, and I added a rinsed & drained can of black beans as well. I also topped it with a healthy squeeze of lime and some chopped fresh cilantro before serving. Thanks for the recipe!"
