Delicious and spicy as you want it to be, great with a grilled cheese. Delicious and spicy as you want it to be, great with a grilled cheese.
Number of Servings: 11


    2 tbsp vegetable or olive oil
    1 bell pepper, seeded and chopped
    1 red onion, peeled and chopped
    4 cloves garlic, chopped
    1 can no-salt-added corn, drained
    2 cans black beans
    1 can Rotel
    2 tbsp cumin (or to taste)
    2 tsp chili powder (or to taste)
    optional: sour cream, cheese, green onion


Using a large pot or dutch oven, saute bell pepper, onion, and garlic in vegetable oil until tender, about 5 minutes. Add corn (drained), Rotel and black beans. Season with chili powder and cumin, to taste. Bring to a boil, then bring temp back down to low to simmer and let flavors blend, about 15 minutes. In small batches (about three cups each), puree soup in blender (or use an immersion blender in pot). Serve hot, topped with sour cream, cheese, and green onions if you like (not in nutrition). My recipe made 5.5 cups of soup, it may vary. The info is for a 1/2 c serving. I didn't use any broth or water to thin it out during cooking, though, and you might want to do that. I've been adding a little water after cooking to stretch out the amount; it does very little to the flavor.
