Warm Me Up Tortilla Soup

Tortilla Soup 1

It’s still pretty chilly here and I’ve been craving soup and this one is one of my favorites.  The flavors really are warming, especially if you add the jalapeno!  I also love cumin so I add more of this than the chili powder but you can adjust to your tastes.

2 Tbsp cornmeal mixed w/ 2 Tbsp water

1 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed

Salt and pepper to taste


Add oil to a large saucepan and heat for a minute over medium heat.  Add onion, pinch of salt and saute 3-4 minutes.  Add garlic, jalapeno (if using), cumin and chili powder.  Let cook for a few minutes.

Add broth, tomatoes, corn and bring to a boil.  Then turn down heat to low, stir in cornmeal mixture and let simmer uncovered for 25-30 minutes.

 Remove from heat and let sit 10 minutes to cool.  Transfer half the soup to a blender and puree.  Add back into the pot along with black beans and stir.  Serve topped with avocado and tortilla chips.
