White Bean, Green Chilies and Tortilla Soup

This recipe was created by Karen Wiens on 12/28/14.

We used to eat tortilla soup a lot…with chicken and dairy products in it. It’s taken me a little bit to come up with a vegan version as satisfying. This is it. Really creamy and hearty – with a little kick! (I shake a little Tabasco on mine to heat it up even more!)
