Nearly Vegetarian Tortilla Soup (without the tortillas)


Going off this recipe, I came up with my own version.  Here is the ingredient list from the changes I’ve made:

  • 1 can of pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1.25 cups of red rice
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 zucchini, chopped
  • 1/2 pasilla pepper, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp mexican oregano
  • 1tsp pasilla chili powder
  • s & p
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 cans broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 10 ounces enchilada sauce
  • 1 cup of frozen corn

Directions:  Chop and dice. Measure. Open cans. Pour.  Season. Taste.  Stir.  It’s done when the rice is cooked.

Garnish with sour cream, cilantro, avocados–tortilla chips.  Shredded lettuce or cabbage.  Salsa.

P.S. Don’t forget to take out the bay leaf.
