Vegan Tortilla Soup

The last time I ate a tortilla soup was in a hole-in-the-wall restaurant in Cozumel, Mexico, six years ago. Not sure why it took me so many years to make it. Especially when it’s my husband’s favorite soup (I didn’t remember it was his favorite until I made it).

Adapted from Jamie Oliver’s excellent (recipes) and inspiring (to cook and travel around America) cookbook, Jamie’s America. Enjoy!
