We tried Kim B.’s Fast Fiesta Soup today for lunch, and everyone declared it dinner-worthy, in spite of the fact that it took about 2 minutes to prepare. It was thick and hearty and cost just over $2 for the entire pot. Perfect for the end of a long shopping day when you arrive home late and tired. A fresh loaf of crusty bread would be nice for dipping, or maybe tortilla chips.
Kim’s recipe is very flexible. Here’s what we used:
Fast Fiesta Soup
1 can corn, undrained
1 can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can tomato soup + 1 can water
1 can black beans, undrained
1 can pinto beans, undrained
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 Tbs. minced dried onions
Dump all in a pot, heat thoroughly, and serve. Ours made a nice thick hearty broth and needed no additional seasoning. With fresh onions, you might need to simmer a bit longer.
