  3. Divide the soup between bowls, scatter with coriander and serve with the tortillas.

I didn’t like this, there was way too much liquid. It was extremely spicy and the bean to liquid ratio was off. I wouldn’t recommend this it would have been better if it was a thick soup but I wasn’t a fan.

Easy to make but a little spicy for my taste although my husband enjoyed it very much. The feta tortillas went very well with the soup.
