Happy February! I come bearing a gift....a recipe :)
Whatever's on Hand Black Bean Tortilla Soup
We made this tonight based on other soups we have, using what little was on hand. Grocery time!
1 onion, chopped
1.5 Tbsp olive oil
2 celery stalks, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 cups vegetable stock
small can of diced seasoned tomatoes
19 oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp oregano, dried
1/2 tsp salt or to taste
tortilla chips, however much you want with your soup!
In a pot on medium heat, saute the onions until translucent. Add the celery and garlic and saute for 2 minutes. Add the stock, tomatoes, beans, spices and herbs and salt. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes. With an immersion blender, blend half or all of the soup carefully. Serve with crushed tortilla chips. (Even better with some guac, but we did not have any avocados).
