This was great! I used a 8oz. cans for the diced tomatoes and chicken broth, low sodium taco seasoning and sliced jalapenos instead of the red pepper...Delish!

I would cut the amount of beans in half for Atkins, or maybe just the serving size in half. Sounds Yummy!
Tried the soup. Didn't taste like the REAL tortilla soup.
This was so good! I have been eating it for days now. Very filling too.
