Tortilla Soup with Avocado

5 Dec

As the season brings a chill in the air I like to bring soup to the table. I am a big fan of soups. I always have been, but I have come along way from Campbell’s chicken and stars being my favorite ha ha. Soups are so versatile.  I love that you can taste as you go and make alterations even at the very last second before you serve up a steamy hot bowl. You don’t really need specific directions for soups. You can fly by the seat of your pants and still make a magnificent meal!  This tortilla soup is one of my favorite creations. I love the creamy avocado mixed with the tomato base. The cilantro gives it a nice bite and the tortilla chips are the perfect salty crunch the soup needs to make it on my list of favorite soups.

Ingredients:

16 oz organic tomato soup

1/2 cup vegetable broth or water

1 can organic black beans

1 can organic sweet corn

1/2 cup chopped onion

1 tbsp minced garlic

1 cup chopped cilantro plus a few tsps for garnish

1 large avocado chopped into cubes

Tortilla chips ( I like to use sweet potato tortilla chips)

Season to taste with : Cumin, Salt, Pepper, Carne Asada or Chilli Seasoning, and the secret ingredient…

a few dashies of sweet BBQ Seasoning  like STUBBS BBQ Rub

Directions:

1.) Combine all ingredients in a large pot (EXCEPT tortilla chips,

Avocado, and extra cilantro for garnish)

2.) Cook on medium heat until onions are soft.

3.) Have a taste of your soup to see if you need any added seasoning.

When you have the perfect marriage of flavors

toss in your avocado cubes.

4.) Serve your tasty soup topped with totilla chips and cilantro.

(Food Should Taste Good Sweet Potato tortilla

chips are my favorite for this soup!)

Mmm Chunky Goodness!
