Tips for making Vegetarian Tortilla Soup

  • Use a high quality vegetable broth.
  • Use fire roasted diced tomatoes over regular diced tomatoes. This adds a nice dynamic and a zippy flavor to your soup.
  • You can use whatever beans you have on hand – I chose garbanzo, black beans, and cannellini.
  • Toppings for tortilla soup: avocado, tortilla strips/chips, cilantro, and shredded cheese are some of our favorite toppings for this soup.
