This Vegetarian Tortilla Soup is so full of flavor and texture, you won’t even miss the meat! Top this off with a squeeze of lime juice, some crunchy tortilla chips avocado, cheese and cilantro. There are so many toppings you can add, and I just use whatever I have on hand. Looking for more soup recipes? Check out some of my favorites!
