It is our life long pursuit to define, explore and report on the genre of food commonly referred to as MANFOOD.  We are not Chefs, Cooks, Grillmasters, or Pitmasters. Unless for fun, we are not competitors, purists, professionals or culinary experts. We are however, a group of guys that enjoy food in a particular way that is simple, straight forward and most of all, fun.


So here is the original recipe that came with the Blendtec

Blentec Tortilla Soup Recipe

I double everything to make enough for 4 or 5 people. I also add some menudo spice but once you get a feel for it you can touch it up however you want.

Here’s everything I used:

For the Broth:

500ml warm water

2 tsp Kosher Salt

2 tsp Dry Menudo Spice

2 tsp Garlic Powder

3 tsp Dash

5-10 Sprigs Cilantro

Half Block Pepper Jack Cheese

1 Large Carrot

1/2 Onion

4 Roma Tomatoes

1/2 Red Bell Pepper

1/2 Avocado

It all goes into the Blendtec and you hit the “Hot” button. CAUTION: this is twice the amount that the recipe calls for so make sure you hold the lid in place. Some liquid may still come out the top of the blender.

Pour the blender contents in a pot then add the corn, chicken and black beans. I used frozen corn, rotisserie chicken from Ralphs and a can of black beans. Add whatever else you want.

Let it simmer as long as you want but at least 15 minutes or so or until its hot

I’m sure this can be done in any juicer or blender with a puree function but I would recommend one of the newer models like Blendtec, Ninja or Vitamix.
