Yippee, I get to eat tortilla soup again! Not many chicken dishes I still craved after I stopped eating meat few years ago, but I would fondly look at chicken tortilla soup on Mexican menus. Mmm. This veg version hits the spot! The 1st time I made it, I didn't realize I was almost out of cumin so I only added 1T, plus 1t of chili powder. Delicious but felt it could use a bit more kick. The next week I made another batch, and I added 2T cumin (since reviewers thought 3T too much) plus the chili powder. Too much cumin. Next time I'll stick to just 1T cumin and kick up the chili powder to 1T. Both times used 3 cans of green chilis. It adds good flavor but not too much heat (I like my spice "medium"). Also, I'm not usually a garnish girl but def add the squeeze of lime (fresh, not bottled if have it) and the chips. Think of them as ingredients, necessary to the flavor! I also added avocado and will start adding beans. As is recipe is 4 stars but with a few tweaks, I'll make it regularly!
