My husband, the soup man he is, texted me from his work to tell me it was national soup day - hint if I ever heard one. I am just starting to learn how to make soup. It was a cold day & I was working from home, soup in the crock sounded good. I was looking through the internet and found a tortilla soup thought what a good idea. I dug through my cupboard and freezer this is what I came up with. Much to my surprise it was tasty and my hubby and daughter loved it. I made enough probably for at least 6 people however we ate the whole crock ourselves.
Peel and dice the onion and garlic, add to crock with the olive oil. Hand squeeze the tomatoes to help cook quicker and pour the whole can in the crock juice and all.
Add all the remaining ingredients expect the tortillas. I can not tolerate hot anymore plus my daughter does not like the spicy hot. I used mild salsa you can turn up the heat by adding more hot sauce, chili powder or use hot salsa. Cook on high 3-4 hours, I took the lid off the last hour stirred it and let it cook uncovered to thicken a bit.
Add crushed tortillas to a bowl ladle soup over the tortilla. Enjoy
