If you are a fan of soup, tortilla soup is a good choice as a full meal on its own. It contains sufficient amounts of produce, as well as protein sources. It also has a wide range of flavors in it.

Protein

Because it contains beans, which are legumes, tortilla soup is a sufficient source for protein, according to Seriouseats.com. It often contains chicken as well, increasing its potential to act as a full meal, rather than an appetizer.

Sodium

The sodium level of tortilla soup can be rather high, due to the number of canned ingredients that are often included. Also, salt may be used to season the soup, further raising the sodium level.

Calories

According to Myfitnesspal.com, a serving of homemade tortilla soups is 2 cups. One serving contains approximately 285 calories. It is also a significant source of dietary carbohydrates and protein.
