Rated 5 out of 5 by JennyW from Delicious! This soup is so good. I can’t believe this great of a tasting soup is only minutes to make in a vitamix. I did not use the taco seasoning… instead I used my Mexican spices like cilantro, chili powder, and Mexican oregano.

Rated 1 out of 5 by tbidder from Not sure what I did wrong... I thought I made this exactly as described, although I have a 750 Pro model. I used the "soup' setting. This turned out to be a disaster. There was no real flavor, and I refused to serve the soup. Made a 2nd batch to use up some of the ingredients, but it was no better than the first. I wish Vitamix had some sort of 'converter' to switch these recipes for the different models because the model was really the only difference in my prep and the recipe description. Not sure I'll try this again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Santarp from Excellent and easy! Great recipe! One thing I end up doing is instead of adding chicken into the blender, I shred it with some last minute tortilla chips and then mix it in - only because I like a bit more texture!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CSMD from A fabulous soup! Each and every time I make this soup, I receive such wonderful, positive comments - in fact they are so complimentary I end up telling them I made it in my vitamix just minutes before I served it - I haven't the heart to pretend it took me hours to prepare lol

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bonzee44 from Super easy! I continue to use the Vitamix daily for smoothies but had gotten away from the soups while we were out of our house during renovations. I watched the QVC presentation and got back on board with this recipe......delicious!

Rated 5 out of 5 by emersoj2 from Delicious and easy! I thought this recipe was super easy to make! we doubled the recipe and our vitamix was able to handle it. Such a easy healthy meal! We pulsed in spinach and added black beans and avocado to the soup bowls. We will definitely be making this again!

For this recipe can it be done with the S-series blender ??
You can certainly make this recipe in your S-Series blender. You will just need to cut the ingredient list in half.

Is there a measurement that could be used in place of 1 thin slice? Thanks!
Nope its just one thin slice. Simple. Its not baking so precise mearuements are not necessary.

hello I have a vita mix and I'm having problems making the tortilla soup. when I make it gets foamy. i am burping the taste of the soup for a day. how do I make the soup without having lots of foam, a little bit of foam is ok but not with lots of it
If you add a little flax seed to the soup the foam will settle down, or you can add more of the bean and other ingredients to create a thicker soup and this will bring the foam down.

I'm assuming that I'm supposed to cook most of these ingredients before placing them in the Vitamix container, but it doesn't say that anywhere.
The high speed and 6 minutes cooks the raw food, no pre cooking!
