Vitamix Tortilla Soup

The Vitamix road show just came to visit our store and of course I stopped by to say hello! I already bought 2 of these amazing blenders... one for me and one as a gift for my mom's birthday. I still love checking out their live demos because they share some super easy/yummy recipes. This Tortilla Soup was one of the recipe demos I watched and sampled - it was so easy to make, no fuss and just delish!

You really can't mess up this soup, and there are no exact proportions. You can use leftovers you already have in your fridge, or get the veggies fresh. What I did was make two batches of this soup in the blender, combined them, and froze half of it for future dinners :)


If you don't already have one of these power machines - what are you waiting for?! The price to go down? Don't waist your time... Besides, this super sonic blender is worth every penny. You can make ice cream in 2 minutes, cook soup, chop veggies, whip up smoothies, and so much more. Nothing compares to it, and after you buy a bunch of blenders that just can't do everything this one can, you'll end up spending what you would have on one of these in the first place. So just do yourself a favor and get one.. You deserve it!

Vitamix Tortilla Soup
  • 3 carrots
  • 4 celery stalks
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes
  • 1/2 onion
  • 4 cloves garlic (no need to remove peel)
  • 5 sundried tomatoes
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro
  • handful of raw cashews
  • 1 cup organic corn - frozen, canned or fresh.
  • 1 large hand full Gutless Gourmet Baked Corn Chips
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • boiling water
Place half of ingredients, besides chips and corn, into Vitamix - it doesn't matter which you choose, everything will be combined at the end anyways. Poor boiling water in blender - enough to cover veggies. Blend well, and poor into a large bowl or pot. Repeat with remainder of ingredients and then add corn chips and corn on low speed (so that they don't get completely blended) and combine with first batch of soup. Pack half of the soup into a zip lock bag and freeze for future meals, or invite a bunch of people over and share.
