Tortilla Soup

I noticed that my friend has one of the fancy blenders that makes ice cream and cooks soup. She shared her recipe for 'fancy dancy blender tortilla soup' which I love.
It is my belief that this recipe can be made with a standard blender, using the stove as the heating element if one does not have the blender - it may just take a little more time.

Tortilla Soup

3 cups water
1 Roma tomato
1 carrot
1 rib celery
1 thin slice of onion
1 garlic clove, peeled
1 thin slice of yellow squash
1 thin slice of red bell pepper
1 thin slice cabbage
1 mushroom
1 Knorr chicken bouillon cube
salt and pepper, to taste
1 tbsp Southwest style spice blend

Mix (in blender) on High.

Add to base soup:
½ c cooked chicken
½ fresh jalapeno
¼ c pitted olives
¼ c canned corn
1 c tortilla chips

Mix on low for 10 seconds.
