Mexican Soup

This recipe comes from my dear friend Colleen and is dedicated to another dear friend Elisa. There can't be anything easier in the world to cook up but you would never know by the way it tastes - delish!

1 can refried beans (don't skip this - trust me)
1 can corn
1 can garbanzo beans
1 can pinto or kidney beans (I like pinto)
I can diced tomatoes
I cup salsa
1 cup chicken broth
1 Tbs cilantro, chopped
Ground cumin to taste

Combine all ingredients in a large pot. Cook over medium heat or until warmed through. Serve with shredded cheese, sour cream and tortilla chips. Yum!

I bet you can also make this in a crock pot, combining all the ingredients and cooking on low for 2-4 hrs depending. We like adding fresh cilantro and a squeeze of lime before serving (chopped avocado is good, too). Perfect for a winter evening...

Oh, I'm glad you posted that recipe! Sounds so yummy and I am SO sick of making the same stuff night after night. It'll be nice to have a new recipe to try. Thanks!

I am trying this TONIGHT! I love new soup recipes- thank you for sharing!
My Dad will be here tonight working on the basement I'm sure he'll love to try it too! He says the sink turned out so AWESOME in your bathroom- is it too much to request a picture- I need ideas for mine :)

Your dad's name is holy in our house - what would we have done without him in this whole undertaking?? He did a fabulous job putting the sink in and I think it turned out just right for the space. I will definitely post pictures if you are interested so check back over the week...

What are you doing to your basement?

Glad you enjoyed this - it's alo yummy (and maybe a bit healthier) with Greek Yogurt :-)

My brother passed away on Tuesday so I'm flying to Arizona over the week-end. Thanks for the pie! I haven't had any yet - but it looks amazing!
