People have offered me their firstborn children for this recipe; it is simple, easy to make, and delicious. It's also vegan if you don't add the cheese at the end. If you prefer a more spicy soup, add a dash or two of hot sauce before serving.

Vegetarian Tortilla Soup

Yield: 12 servings


Ingredients:
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 (1 pound) package frozen pepper and onion stir fry mix
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 3 (4 ounce) cans chopped green chile peppers, drained
  • 4 (14 ounce) cans vegetable broth
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 (11 ounce) can whole kernel corn
  • 12 ounces tortilla chips
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 avocado - peeled, pitted and diced

Directions:
  1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in the pepper and onion stir fry mix, garlic, and cumin, and cook 5 minutes, until vegetables are tender. Mix in the tomatoes and chile peppers. Pour in the broth, and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer 30 minutes.
