Tortilla Soup with Black Beans

This meal is healthy, affordable and delicious all because of beans.  Canned beans are a pantry-staple that you should always keep on hand.  Simply rinse the beans before adding to recipes to remove excess sodium.  Recipe serves 4.

  • 2 cans (14 1/2 ounces each) diced tomatoes
  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (14 1/2 ounces) vegetable broth
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen corn kernels
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 cup crushed tortilla chips, for serving
  • lime wedges, for serving

What you’ll do:

  • In a large saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat.
  • Cook the garlic and chili powder for 1 minute.
  • Add the tomatoes (with their juice), beans, broth, corn and 1 cup of water.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Bring the soup to a boil; reduce to a simmer.
  • Add the tortilla chips, cook until softened, about 2 minutes.
