IN THE MIDDLE OF A SNOW STORM IN BUFFALO, NY THERE IS NOTHING BETTER THAN MAKING SOME VEGETARIAN BLACK BEAN SOUP!
I MAKE THIS IN THE CROCK POT SO JUST THROW EVERYTHING IN!
1 small onion, diced
1 tsp garlic
1/2 c frozen corn
2 c vegetable broth
1 c hot salsa
1 (15oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 Tbsp cumin
dash of lime juice
cheddar cheese and tortilla chips (OPTIONAL)
Place first 6 ingredients in crock pot and cook on LOW setting 4-5 hours. Add spices and lime juice in the last hour of cooking.
Serve with cheddar cheese and tortilla chips on top!
PROVIDES NEARLY 45% OF YOUR DAILY PROTEIN NEEDS AND MINIMAL FAT. (TO ELIMINATE MORE FAT FORGO THE CHEESE AND CHIPS.)
THIS IS WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE THIS MORNING IN LAKE VIEW, NY!
HEAT UP IN A SNOW STORM WITH THIS SPICY HOT SOUP!
**Personally, I would double the recipe because I want more than 4 servings of this – clears the sinuses too!!
