Tortilla Soup

Do you need a one-dish meal that's quick and easy? Something you can put together in a few minutes and it tastes like it's simmered on the stove for hours? This is it! It's so easy and simply delicious! If you are really in a time crunch, this is a great crock pot recipe.

Tortilla Soup

1 onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. olive oil

Saute' onion and garlic in oil until soft.


1 can tomatoes, diced
1 can olives, sliced
1 can green chilies, chopped
1 can pinto beans
1 can corn
1 cup salsa
4 cups chicken-style broth
1 Tbsp. ground cumin
3 Tbsp. taco seasoning
salt to taste
fresh cilantro and grape tomatoes to garnish
vegan sour cream to garnish
corn tortillas, slice thinly and saute'ed

Blend all ingredients in kettle except those used for garnish. Adjust seasonings as desired. Ladle into soup bowls and garnish as desired. Serve with crunched up tortilla chips (can be stirred into the soup). Delish!


  1. I make a taco soup that my kids just love. But, I never thought about starting with chicken stock. Isn't that weird? I make mine using a TON of tomatoes like diced, crushed or sauce. I like this version. I can save all of those cans of tomatoes for sauce!


  2. Yum, thanks for sharing the recipe!
