|Black Bean Tortilla Soup|
You will need:
1.5 cups dried black beans, soaked overnight
1.5 cups of any combination of finely chopped onions, bell peppers, celery, carrots, etc.
1 can diced tomatoes, juice and all
1-2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 tbsp of bottled chipotle sauce
½ tsp cumin powder
6-7 cups of veggie stock
1 tbsp of olive oil
Optional – salt if needed (we skipped)
Toss everything into your slow cooker / crock pot, cover, turn on “low”. Then walk away. (Or go to work!) Come back after 9-10 hours. It should be ready to eat and delicious. Give it a good stir before serving. Optional - top with tortilla chips, cilantro, and/or avocado. We did all three and it was fabulous. Enjoy!
P.S.: you can also cook on “high” for 4 hours, then “low” for 2 hours.
