  • I make it exactly how you said except that I use two normal sized cans of tomato sauce (14 oz). It was an accident because I assumed thats the size that was called for. I love it, and I'll keep using the 14 oz. It gives it a great taste. Frequently, my entire family asks for this tortilla soup! - 6/24/13

  • very similar to a soup I do as well, but I will tell you one BIG difference that I Think you will like!
    I always blend about 1/4-1/3 of the soup up with an immersion blender (you can use a regular blender if you dont have an immersion).
    it makes the texture PERFECT! - 10/29/12

    This recipe looks really good! My husband doesn't like spicy foods, so I'll have to omit the jalapeno pepper, but I'm looking forward to trying it out soon! - 5/25/09

    Considering how much it makes the one pepper does nothing for making it too spicy. In fact my wife and In-Laws are all non-spicey and cannot get enough of the soup.

  • Delicious! It makes a bit much, so I've still got most of it waiting for me in the freezer for later. :-) I also added cilantro to my bowl after serving (I love cilantro and sneak it in whenever I can.) Highly recommended, thanks for sharing this recipe! - 5/3/09

  • This soup was scrumptious. Put a tad of low fat cheese on top and crumbled 2 tostada chips and it was so good. The seasonings are perfect as well, nothing was overdone. Thank you for sharing such an easy to make, satisfying meal. - 4/23/09

  • It sound delicious, will try it soon. It almost like the chicken enchilada soup they service at Chillis, which I really enjoy a lot. Thanks for sharing your recipe - 4/20/09

    I don't see an option for editing this so I have to leave a comment here. During step 4 is when the spices are added as well. I also used some of the ingredients listed here. I think one of those must have been high in sodium as it can certainly be made with lower sodium than listed.
