tortilla soup

One of my favorite soups.
Just try it.

Tortilla Soup
Serves 4-6.
3 tablespoons butter
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 tablespoon cumin
2 teaspoons chili powder
Pinch of red pepper flakes
1 can (8 ounces) of tomato sauce
1 can (14 ounces) of diced tomatoes
6 cups chicken stock
1 cup frozen corn, thawed
1 can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
Tortilla chips, shredded cheese, diced avocados and chopped fresh cilantro, for garnish

Melt the butter in a Dutch oven over medium heat.  Add onions and garlic and saute until golden, about 5 minutes.  Add tomato paste and spices and toast lightly, about 30 seconds.  Add tomato sauce, diced tomatoes with their juices and stock and bring to a boil.  Add corn and beans, reduce heat and simmer for about 20 minutes.  Garnish with toppings and enjoy!


  1. Just made this for JR to bring to the ship for dinner tonight. He is going to LOVE it! I added shredded chicken (though he's on a strictly no chicken diet...)
    Thanks again!

  2. Ya, I almost always add leftover chicken too! I hope he likes it :)

  3. This sounds like a variation of the famous "Katie's Soup" recipe. hehehhehehe

  4. Oh yeah. That sounds delicious!

  5. Hahhaha, yes this is a "Katie's Soup" base, Mom...
    And add some shredded chicken, Maranda! Good way to use up leftovers...
