  • few tablespoons of water (or 1 TBLS olive oil)
  • 1 cup celery
  • 1 cup onion
  • 1/2 cup green bell pepper
  • 1 can diced green chillis
  • 4-5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2-1 tsp black pepper
  • 6 cups vegetable broth (or part broth and part water)
  • 6 cans no salt black beans (or 1/2 black and 1/2 pinto)
  • 2 cans stewed tomatoes
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro (chopped)
  • Corn chips
  • Daiya vegan cheese (cheddar or jack can be used)

Preparation & Directions

Heat water (or oil) in pan and sauté celery, onion bell pepper and garlic.  If you’re using water, make sure to keep adding a bit of water so the veggies don’t stick and burn. Cook for about 10 minutes until tender.  Add chillis and seasonings and cook an additional 3 minutes.  Add broth, beans and tomatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes.  Remove 1/3 of soup and put in a high powered blender and puree and then add it back to your pot of soup.  Add in your chopped cilantro and let cook an additional 5 minutes.  Serve with a handful of corn chips and some shreds of cheddar cheese!  If you’d like the soup to thicken up, let simmer additional time with the lid off.
