about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.

2. Meanwhile, In a food processor fitted with a steel blade, combine onion, garlic, tomatoes, chile and pepper. Process until vegetables are finely chopped.

3. Coat a 3-quart pot with fat-free cooking spray. Add vegetables; sauté until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Add broth; simmer until vegetables are tender and flavours are blended, about 5 minutes. Stir in cilantro, salt and pepper.

4. Spoon soup into 4 bowls. Top each with 1/4 toasted tortillas.

Yields about 1 1/2 cups per serving.

If you don't have serranos you can use another type of chile (although it won't be quite the same)
