I was inspired by this post yesterday on The Importance of Being Reese – this chick is actually kinda close to me and I didn’t know until I started reading her blog! Cool huh?
So anyhoo, obviously, as the resident veg in charge, I couldn’t do a chicken tortilla soup, but I used my noodle, and whipped up a quick and delicious veg tortilla soup, totally packed with protein and deliciousness for you to enjoy.
Soooooo here goes, my little poodles.
What you’ll need:
A thingie of low-sodium vegetable broth
1 can of black beans
1 can of corn
1/2 can of diced tomatoes
Some cayenne pepper powder
A tad bit of cilantro
A some crushed tortilla chips
What you’ll do:
In a soup pan, dump your can of black beans, juice and all in there. Now drain your corn, and dump that, along with the tomatoes in there too. Paprika, cayenne, and cilantro to taste, along with with a pinch of salt. Add a little bit of vegetable broth. Make it as juicy or as thick as you want, and heat on high til you see a boil, and then let it simmer for about 20 minutes. As you serve it, sprinkle some tortilla on top, add some guac, or add a spoonful of rice.
What do you think?
