This surprised me by being as good as it was. I made several changes based on what I had. (Sorry, I know people HATE that but I only review for my own future benefit when I revisit a recipe, so bear with me). I only had zucchini, but I did have four very small potatoes that were going soft, so I shredded all my veggies and sauteed them with the onion and garlic before adding the broth. Used fresh tomatoes and frozen corn (we don't much dig canned veg). I omitted the oregano (don't care for it in Mexican food) and added cumin, chili powder, and a dash of salt instead. Since it's a meatless meal, I added black beans for some protein. I avoid processed food so simply added a handful of real cheese (cheddar for the kids, pepperjack for the grownups) into each bowl with the hot soup. Served with sour cream and tortilla chips. Yum! Wish I'd had the yellow squash, it's a really tasty way to get some of the healthier veggies in (and you'll never miss the Velveeta, the real cheese is so much better)! Next time I might shred a carrot too.
