I made this in my Dutch oven on the stove and simmered it for about an hour. Excellent flavor!! We really enjoyed adding the crunch of tortillas, and the creaminess of cheese and avocado with this warm and hearty soup. We will definitely be making this again.

Very tasty. Added tortilla strips, sour cream and shredded cheese to the top and it was delicious. My kids loved it too.
