  • 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
