I love a good Tortilla soup and this light version did not disappoint. I added this Tortilla soup to our meal plan for Meatless Monday and it was a hit in our house. I hope your family enjoys it as much as we did!

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 (28 oz) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 red pepper; seeded and chopped
  • 1 small sweet onion; finely chopped
  • 1 can green chili peppers
  • 1 can black beans; drained and rinsed
  • 2 cups frozen corn, thawed
  • 60 oz. low sodium vegetable broth
  • 3 Tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. ground coriander
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 lime; juiced
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro; chopped and a little extra for topping

 Instructions

Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in the peppers, onion, garlic and cumin, and cook for 5-6 minutes, or until vegetables are tender. Mix in the crushed tomatoes and chile peppers. Pour in the broth, and season with salt, pepper, paprika, coriander and cayenne pepper. Add in the juice of 1 lime and stir to mix. Bring soup to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer at least 25 minutes. Place your corn out to thaw and rinse your black beans thoroughly. Then add in your corn, black beans, cilantro, green onions, and cook for another 5 minutes. Remove soup from heat and let cool for about 10 minutes before serving. I served it with crushed tortilla chips, extra cilantro, green onion, avocado, shredded cheese and greek yogurt on the side. That way we could pick and choose from the toppings depending on what each one of us likes!
