      I often order tortilla soup when we go out to eat so when I saw this recipe I just knew I had to try it. It was easy to prepare and tastes great. I do not have an immersion blender so I just threw the soup in two batches into my blender and that worked out just fine. I used 16 oz. canned tomatoes and to bring the heat down to a level that we can tolerate I used canned green chilies. Thanks so much for a great recipe!
