Speedy Gonzales Soup

In my never-ending quest to ease the meal time rush, I have created the following recipe. It’s simple, quick, low fat and vegetarian.

Speedy Gonzales Soup
serves 8

2 cups frozen corn
2 – 540ml cans of black beans, rinsed
1 cup salsa
1 – 28oz can diced tomatoes
5 cups water or stock
1/2 tsp cumin
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 tsp Italian herbs

Toppings
1 cup low-fat cheese
1 cup low-fat sour cream
2 cups low-fat, baked tortilla chips, crushed

Place all ingredients, except toppings in a large soup pot. Bring to a boil over medium high heat. Reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes.
Serve in bowls and top with a couple of tablespoons of cheese, sour cream and tortilla chips.

If time and energy permit, serve with cornbread and a fresh fruit salad!

Enjoy!
