With a fridge full of fresh ingredients that desperately needed to be used, a chilly fall afternoon, and a husband who wouldn’t be around for dinnertime, I knew soup was the perfect solution. I chopped and diced everything in sight and came up with a hearty, brothy, spicy, delicious soup that Kevin and I loved. It made enough for seconds and leftovers!
Fresh Salsa Soup Recipe
recipe by adorkablerecipes.blogspot.com
Makes 6 servings
1/2 large onion, diced
1 green pepper, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced
2 ears of corn, kernels cut off
2 large tomatoes, diced
1–14.5 oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 tsp basil
1/2 tsp oregano
2 tsp cumin
1 Tbsp chili powder
3 cups water
2 beef bouillon cubes
In a large stock pot, drizzle canola oil once or twice around the pan. Once heated to medium or medium high, add onions, peppers, and garlic and saute for 3-4 minutes, until softened. Add in corn and tomatoes and cook another 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir black beans, and spices then add the water and bouillon cubes. Bring to a boil, and reduce heat to medium high for 10-15 minutes (minimum) to allow flavors to meld. (This can be simmered for hours, if desired.)
Serve with a side of tortilla chips and sour cream!
