Place the stock ingredients in a large saucepan and bring to a boil.
Partially cover, lower heat to simmer, and cook for about 30 minutes. Keep

vegetables are very tender.

Puree the roasted bell peppers and the tomatoes in a blender or food
processor with 2 cups of the stock. Puree until smooth, then add this to
the onion mixture. Strain in the rest of the stock, pressing every last bit
of the liquid from the cooked vegetables.

Add lime juice; taste to correct salt and add the cayenne or a small amount
of the chipotles. Serve hot, topped with a generous handful of tortilla
