Tortilla Soup

Happy Soup Wednesday! I love a good tortilla soup, it's also usually really easy to find a vegetarian version in a restaurant which is always a plus. This recipe comes from the Cooking Photographer and is vegan. However, you can add any toppings you'd like, mine's not vegan because I added cheese and sour cream.

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

-1/2 teaspoon black pepper
-3 tablespoons light colored oil

-1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
-2 (32 ounce) containers Swanson Organic Vegetable Broth

-2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, drained and rinsed
-Juice of 1/2 a lime
Prep the veggies.
In a bowl, mix the seasonings.
Heat the oil in a large skillet, add the onion and peppers and cook until softened.

Add the garlic and spices, cook for two minutes.
Add the tomatoes, green chilies and corn.  
Add in the vegetable broth, cook until heated.
Then add the black beans about two minutes before serving.
Add desired toppings. 

I have a confession to make...even though I cook often I still make some serious mistakes. This soup was delicious, there was nothing wrong with the recipe, but somewhere along the way I mis-measured some of the spice and my soup was so spicy it could barley be eaten. And I'm not a wimp when it comes to spicy food, but I really couldn't handle the soup that I made. What I could taste through the spicy onslaught was really great, if you check this out and manage not to over season (and I'm sure you won't make my mistake) leave me a comment and let me know how it went!
