This spicy soup is delicious for family meals and also works well for feeding a crowd. For big groups of people, I serve it in individual mugs rather than in bowls, with plenty of tortilla chips and cheese. Everyone always enjoys it!

"I have made this recipe for years and let me tell you it is hands UP the BEST tortilla soup. You can make it as hot or mild as required depending on family/friends. I use the green chilies in the can (2 cans) just in case you can't locate fresh and of course a can of diced canned tomatoes. Of course, we add chicken which isn't located in this recipe as this is a full meal for us."

"The broth of this soup is so good! But my family prefers corn instead of flour tortillas."
