This soup was very tasty! I did add 5 thin slices mushrooms and i didn't think there was enough liquid so added about a cup more of veg broth (i didnt have another chicken broth). Also no tortillas so added Que Pasa extra thick tortilla chips at the end. Topped with a couple more chips in the serving bowl and added a couple sprigs cilantro and a dollop of sour cream.
