Spicy Tomato Tortilla soup

I love tortilla soup and decided to try out this easy, vegetarian version.  My friend gave me some organic tomatoes from her garden and I used these as the base for the soup.  I was too lazy to bake or fry the corn tortillas and ended up using Trader Joes healthy quinoa and blackbean tortilla chips!  The soup was flavorful and nutritious and was a hit with the family!

What you need:

2 cups chopped tomatoes

1 small onion chopped

1 tsp minced garlic

1 jalapeno finely chopped

1 tsp butter

1 tbsp sour cream

1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro

1/2 cup tortilla chips broken into small bits

1/4 tsp red chilli flakes

Salt to taste

How to make:

1.  Puree the chopped tomatoes and keep aside.

2.  Heat butter in a pot and add the onion.  Saute till it turns pink.  Add the jalapeno and stir well.

3.  Add the tomato puree and season with salt and chilli flakes and mix well.  Simmer for 5-7 minutes.  Add in the sour cream and half the cilantro and stir well.

4.  Garnish the soup with the tortilla chips and the remaining cilantro.  Serve hot!
