Tortilla Soup Update

We haven’t had Tortilla Soup in a while, and it sounded good, and it has only ingredients that I can eat…Super! I tried a little something different this time. I know I have put the recipe on this blog before, but I’ll go ahead and do it again, with the ingredient updates.

3 medium tomatoes

1 large onion

1 clove garlic

6 cups chicken broth

1 tablespoon cumin

1 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup olive oil (or other)

1 can black beans, undrained

Fried tortilla strips

shredded cheese

plain yogurt

For authentic flavor, you broil the heck out of the toms and onion. We’re talking black skins. Then take off the black skins. Whir the hot veggies with garlic and oil and seasoning in your blender or food processor (or mini-chopper in my case). Add to simmering chicken broth. Add the black beans. (That is the update.) Serve over tortilla strips, yogurt, cheese and if you are very very lucky…perfectly ripe avocado. What a treat!
