Archive »Vegetable Tortilla Soup
Going around the table, each person names a "rose" (high point), "thorn" (low point) and "bud" (thing to look forward to) from the day.
If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would you choose?
Our friends at the Zen of Slow Cooking shared this recipe for a slow cooker friendly Vegetable Tortilla Soup! It’s easy to make and also budget-friendly, so it’s a perfect addition to any family dinner menu. If you don’t have a slow cooker, directions are included for making this soup in a pressure cooker or on the stovetop.
The original recipe on the Zen site calls for their Southwest Fiesta spice blend. We’ve adapted the recipe below to use pantry ingredients you may already have on hand.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup (1 small) onion, diced
1 cup (1 small) red bell pepper, diced
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 (15 oz) cans black beans, drained and rinsed
1 (15oz) can sweet corn
14 oz can diced tomatoes
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 chipotle chili in adobo, chopped (optional)
4 cups (32 fl oz) vegetable broth (plus 1 cup water for pressure cooking)
Optional toppings, for serving: tortilla chips, feta cheese crumbles, hot sauce, sour cream, avocado, diced onion, lime juice
