  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • Optional: salt & pepper to taste (and additional garnish of shredded cheese & greek yogurt)

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Combine first 5 ingredients in large pot.
  3. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 min.
  4. Meanwhile, spread tortillas strips on a cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees F for 4-6 minutes until they are crispy and just start to brown.
  5. Serve each serving of soup with ⅛ of the tortilla strips and a couple tsp of fresh cilantro. Shredded cheese and a dollop of greek yogurt is an optional garnish (not included in nutrition)
