Mixed Up Tortilla Soup


I love soup! Soup is so flavorful with each recipe offering unique, complex and often very simple cooking methods. I developed this Mixed Up Tortilla Soup recipe after I purchased my Vitamix years ago and have tweaked a bit from time to time.  If you don’t own a Vitamix (I highly suggest) you can use an electric blender. One of the fabulous features on the Vitamix is a setting for hot soup. As the ingredients process, the mixture heats and it’s ready to eat after processing.  Of course, you can warm your creation stovetop or microwave, but I love this simple feature. Enjoy!! 


Mixed Up Tortilla Soup

Serves 4


5 baby carrots

1 stalk celery, halved

1 clove garlic

1 Roma tomato, seeds and ribs removed, quartered

½ tbsp cilantro

1 tsp Kosher salt

3 black peppercorns

1 tbsp cashews

1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

1 cup hot chicken broth

3 baby spinach leaves

1 cup corn tortilla chips



Place carrots and next 9 ingredients into the container of an electric blender, firmly secure lid.  Blend on HIGH 1 minute or until ingredients are processed, and pureed.  Add spinach and tortilla chips.  Pulse ingredients until chopped and incorporated.  Serve warm with your favorite toppings. 



Kitchen Tips

~I often double or triple this recipe to have throughout the week. 

~If using a Vitamix, you’ll know the recipe is ready when you see steam rising from the vented lid. 

~Top with rotisserie chicken or cooked and cubed chicken breast.
