Black Bean Tortilla Soup



3-4 tablespoons olive oil, 1/3 yellow onion, 1 red bell pepper, 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, 1/4 teaspoon cumin, salt + pepper, 1 1/2 cups veggie stock, 1 can black beans, homemade tortilla strips, avocado and cilantro to serve.


In a pot heat the olive oil over medium heat. Finely chop the onion and bell pepper, saute in the oil. Season with cumin, salt + pepper. Once the onions have softened add in the chopped chipotle peppers. If you like a lot of spice, add a teaspoon or two of the adobo sauce too. Now add in the stock and rinsed beans and continue to cook until warmed through.

To make homemade tortilla strips all you need are corn tortillas and oil! Thinly slice your corn tortillas and then pan fry in 1/4 inch oil until crispy. Serve with soup along with a few slices of avocado and some chopped cilantro.
