Souppppp. Yay for easy, hot soup.
|Haircut boy!! Skinny again!|
Warning! I used tomato sauce this time since I didn't have paste, and it doesn't work as well. I think the paste is supposed to deepen the flavor and sauce isn't strong enough to do that. Also, when I've made this soup in the past I've used a stronger flavor of salsa and that makes a difference too! Basically, it was good this time, but when I've made it with better ingredients, it's been better!
1 tbsp oil
1 onion, sliced
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp cayenne
1 jar salsa (Normal-ish size, whatever salsa you like. Spicy if you like spicy.)
4 cups chicken (or veg) broth
2 cups water
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 1/2 cup black beans
1 1/2 cup corn
1 tbsp lime juice
2-3 corn tortillas, sliced (look at the pic below)
Topping options: avocado slices, sour cream, cilantro, cheese, chicken, diced red onion, more tortilla chips (I like to keep putting fresh crispy ones on)
In a large pot (I like using a dutch oven for soups) fry up the onion and spices in the oil. Add the salsa, broth, water, tomato paste, black beans and corn and bring to a boil over med-hi heat. Turn it down a little and let it simmer for about a half hour. Add the lime juice and tortilla strips and let it simmer another couple minutes.
Serve immediately. Top with stuff!
