Make this tortilla soup during the winter months to wake up your taste buds. This can be a spicy recipe. You can substitue chili peppers for jalapeno peppers. Perfect way to end the day.

I agree with Barb. This is not tortilla soup, this is someone's idea of "cooking Mexican". Real tortilla soup is a subtle delight; a rich flavorful broth, beef or chicken, and fried tortilla strips served with sides of minced onion, cilantro, and crumbled Mexican farmer-style cheese to sprinkle over the top. All of the other ingredients in this recipe just serve to diminish the soup.
