Meatless Tortilla Soup

I had to be outside at 6:30 AM this morning.  I don't like to be out this early, and I especially don't like it when it's 0 degrees.  That's right, there wasn't even a number on the thermometer this morning.  It is a soup, warm your bones, kind of day.

I came up with this meatless Tortilla Soup.  Amazingly, my entire family loves it!  I repeat, my entire family loves it!  Victory!

Yum, this looks so good! I usually make a few meatless recipes each week (I just get tired of the expense and cleanup required with meaty meals!), so this looks perfect. I'll be adding it to my menu for list week. Already excited to eat it :-)
