Vegetarian Tortilla Soup




People have offered me their firstborn children for this recipe; it is simple, easy to make, and delicious. It's also vegan if you don't add the cheese at the end. If you prefer a more spicy soup, add a dash or two of hot sauce before serving.

Ingredients:
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 (1 pound) package frozen pepper and onion stir fry mix

  • 12 ounces tortilla chips
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

  1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in the pepper and onion stir fry mix, garlic, and cumin, and cook 5 minutes, until vegetables are tender.
