Tortilla Soup (Vegan)
Time: 30 minutes
Tortilla soup isn't simply chili with some crushed chips on top of it! For me the perfect tortilla soup has a lighter tomato broth and simple but assertive spice. No tomato paste here, for a full bodied soup, crushed tortilla chips while the soup is cooking is the way to go. A sprinkle of crushed chips on the top finishes it off for a perfect fiesta of flavor and texture. Baked tortillas provide the best nutrition profile, but regular ones will work too, it's not like there are a ton of them in here. A poblano gives more authentic flavor, but a plain old green pepper is just fine.
