    Crispy Tortilla Soup Crispy Tortilla Soup

    This is the perfect soup for a cold winter's day. Traditionally, tortilla soup is made with fried corn tortillas. To make it healthier, this recipe uses fat free tortillas that are made crisp by baking.

    Prep: 10 min - Bake: 5 min - Cook: 22 min

    Tortillas Ingredients:
    1 tablespoon LAND O LAKES® Butter, melted
    2 (10-inch) fat free flour tortillas

    Soup Ingredients:
    1 tablespoon LAND O LAKES® Butter
    1 medium (1/2 cup) onion, chopped
    1/2 to 1 jalapeņo pepper, seeded, chopped
    1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh garlic
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    2 (14 1/2-ounce) cans low-sodium chicken broth or vegetable broth
    1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes
    1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
    1/2 cup LAND O LAKES® Monterey Jack Cheese, shredded
    2 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro

    Heat oven to 375°F. Brush 1 tablespoon melted butter on both sides of each tortilla. Cut tortillas into 2 1/2x1/4-inch strips. Place on baking sheet. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until light golden brown.

    Meanwhile, melt 1 tablespoon butter in 2-quart saucepan until sizzling; add onion, jalapeņo, garlic and cumin. Cook over medium-high heat until onion is softened (3 to 4 minutes). Add broth and tomatoes. Continue cooking until mixture just comes to a boil (4 to 6 minutes).

    Reduce heat to medium-low. Add 10 baked tortilla strips. Cover; cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes. Stir in lime juice.

    Place 2 cups soup in 5-cup blender container or food processor bowl. Cover; blend on Low until smooth (30 to 60 seconds). Repeat with remaining soup.

    To serve, top soup with remaining tortilla strips, shredded cheese and cilantro.

    Makes 5 (1-cup) servings
