This tortilla soup is the perfect recipe for a cold winter day.
Heat oven to 375°F. Brush 1 tablespoon melted butter on both sides of each tortilla. Cut tortillas into 2 1/2x1/4-inch strips. Place on baking sheet. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until light golden brown.
Meanwhile, melt 1 tablespoon butter in 2-quart saucepan until sizzling; add onion, jalapeño, garlic and cumin. Cook over medium-high heat until onion is softened (3 to 4 minutes). Add broth and tomatoes. Continue cooking until mixture just comes to a boil (4 to 6 minutes).
Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover; cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes. Stir in lime juice.
Place 2 cups soup in 5-cup blender container or food processor bowl. Cover; blend on Low until smooth (30 to 60 seconds). Repeat with remaining soup.
To serve, top soup with tortilla strips, shredded cheese and cilantro.

Very easy recipe, good flavor - does "need something". I am going to try and add some chicken or veggies as the other reviews suggested but overall very good.
We make this all the time, it's super easy and a great make-ahead meal. We add cooked chicken and really make it hearty. Love it!
Added corn and green bell pepper to make it more chunky. Also added 4-6 oz American cheese. It was delicious but since the original recipe didn't call for those things I couldn't give it an "'excellent."
I didn't add the peppers because we don't like our soups too spicy but it still tasted great.
