This really is delish and I learned a bit about altering my typical recipe towards being vegetarian. However, I think I'll stick with my typical recipe most of the time (2 parts broth to 1 part salsa, with as many onions and summer squashes chopped up and thrown in as you like, with nothing else added until individuals add to their own bowls: protein of choice, tortillas, and optionally some FF cheese or sour cream - BTW we like the veggies either cooked until just tender, or cooked to bits, but not so much the half-way overcooked version). Anyway, I'll probably stick with that broth/veg as a base prior to serving, and this is the reason why: by weight watcher's standards, the base for my regular recipe is point free. That means that some members of my family can add lots of extra calories (such as my 15 yo 6'1" son and my active husband), while my 11 yo daughter and I add in smaller amounts of the extras - in keeping with our individual caloric needs. - Anyway, there might be times when I'll serve this yummy version as a change of pace, as it really is delish.... Yum! Most of all, thanks for sharing - somehow I hadn't thought of using beans in my own soup instead of the chicken that was suggested by the original recipe, and then one of your reviewers taught me that these soups can be thickened by adding tortillas earlier in the cooking process............... Pretty cool!
