I'm from Texas currently living in Washington & I love Mexican food. Believe me, I know good Mexican food when I taste it. This recipe is a good jumping off point with a few adjustments. Anyone that knows anything about tortilla soup, knows the best way to eat this is not to put the tortillas into the soup. It makes them 'soggy' and disquesting. I fixed the recipe true to guidelines, other than that. Tortilla soup base is best with chicken broth, not so many tomatoes; I'd eliminate them altogether and use chicken broth/bullion instead. Then when the soup is done, put some fresh cilantro in the soup...so much better than cooking it in. On top I put chopped fresh tomatoes, some fresh onions, green or red (whatever you got) and while the soup has been cooking, cut some uncooked corn tortillas into thin strips and fry them up. Tortilla soup is great with avacados either sliced or cubed on top and a spoonful of sour cream on top. Squeeze some lime in for more flavor. The tortilla strips are put on the top right before eating, making them crunchy and heavenly. Hope this helps. I give this 4 stars due to all the adjustments I had to make and due to the base not being true chicken base. Best of luck.
