Recipe: Vegetarian Tortilla Soup

Recipe: Vegetarian Tortilla Soup

Soup is easily one of my favorite meals. You can dress it up with various toppings, it’s filling and easy to make, and it’s usually pretty healthy. This Vegetarian (it’s actually vegan-friendly) Tortilla Soup checks all those boxes, and then some—it has the added bonus of being a crock pot recipe that requires little to no effort.

We topped ours with low-fat Mexican cheese and light sour cream (and some other items), but leave those items off if you want a vegan version. You can also add more or less vegetable broth, depending on if you like or runnier soup or prefer a chili-like consistency. Add more jalapeños or cayenne if you want a spicier version, too. This is guaranteed to quickly become a favorite in your fall food repertoire!

STEPS

1) Add literally all of the ingredients except the tortillas to a crock pot and cook on high for four hours.

2) When the soup has about 10 minutes left, preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Cut the tortillas into strips and toss with salt, pepper, and olive oil. Cook in the oven for 6-7 minutes until they’re crispy but not burnt.
