Vegetable Tortilla Soup
Although the exact origin of tortilla soup unknown, many give the Mexico City area in Mexico credit. Traditional tortilla soup is made with chicken broth combined with roasted tomatoes, onion, garlic, chiles and tortillas, cut into strips and fried. Inspired by the comforting flavors, we took a modern approach by adding SugarRoti Pork Nu Spice to vegetable broth for a deliciously creative vegetarian (or vegan) tortilla soup experience in just 40 minutes. When combined, the blends bring out a depth of flavor that is rich and hearty and warms the soul. It's the easiest way to serve comfort, quickly.
