Ole’ Ole’ Ole’! Veg-head Mexican Tortilla Soup

Ok guys, THIS is my FAVORITE soup ever! I came across it while surfing through vegetarian food blogs and posts a long time ago and it’s officially my top dish at home! If it were a website, it would have the most hits, let’s put it that way. Mexican is one of my favorite flavors of food and I’m almost always up for it-so this soup is a major staple in our home. Plus it makes a big pot so I can eat on it all through the work week!

I had to have portraits taken with my favorite soup!

It’s seriously AMAZING! The original recipe suggests cheese, sour cream, chips and avocado as garnishes to the dish. So that was all that I had to alter in order to vegan-ify it! -just use whole grain chips and avocado-cilantro would be great too!

Let’s get cooking!

You’ll need:

Water for sautéing
2 tablespoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons sweet paprika
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon coriander
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 large onion, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 (4 ounce) can diced mild green chiles, drained
2 (10 ounce) cans RoTel Diced Tomatoes with Lime & Cilantro
1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
2 (32 ounce) containers Organic Vegetable Broth
2 (15 ounce) cans organic black beans, drained and rinsed
Juice of 1/2 a lime

Directions:

1. In a small bowl mix together cumin, sweet paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, coriander, and black pepper. Set aside.

2. In a large pot heat the water over medium high. Add the onions and bell peppers. Sauté until soft, stirring occasionally. Add the spices and garlic; cook for 2 minutes.

3. Add the green chile peppers, RoTel, corn and vegetable broth. Cook until warmed through. Add the black beans and cook for 2 minutes before serving. Squeeze in lime juice. Serve in bowls and garnish as desired.
