Twilight Tortilla Soup

Not really.

I found this recipe on Vogue.com and it's really just Kristen Stewart's Tortilla Soup recipe.
I just decided to rename it because Twilight and Kristen Stewart go hand-in-hand
And I believe Twilight is just as appropriate.

Anyways I'm super excited to try it.
And I'm excited to share it with you.
So, if you try it, let me know!

2 tablespoons Vegetable Oil
1 can Diced Tomatoes
1 Yellow Onion, diced
2 Jalapeno Peppers, chopped
2 Bell Peppers, chopped
2 cloves Garlic, minced
3 tablespoons Ground Cumin
4 cups Chicken Broth
(I plan to add Chicken, too)

Paprika (~2 teaspoons)
Garlic Salt (~2 teaspoons)
Chili Powder (~2 tablespoons)
Avacado, diced (~1)
Shredded Cheddar Cheese (~1 cup)
Fresh Cilantro, chopped
Flour Tortillas (~2)
Lime Wedges

Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Cook garlic, onion, and cumin till onions are translucent.

Add bell peppers, cook until tender - 2 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently.

Stir in broth, tomatoes, and jalapenos. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes, stirring periodically.

Cut tortillas into 2-inch wide strips, grill for a few minutes until toasted.

Top each bowl with ganishings.
