Stay warm with this super simple tortilla soup

I love this soup for so many reasons, but the main one is that it's perfect for people counting calories (130 calories per cup!), for those on a slow-carb diet* and even for vegetarians and even vegans! Also, it's super filling and great for cold nights. Check it out! 
What to put in it: 
  • One chopped onion
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 tsp chopped garlic
  • Dash of oregano
  • Cumin to taste (1 tsp recommended)
  • Chili powder to taste (1 tsp is great)
  • 5 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 15.5 oz can black beans, rinsed
  • 1 32 oz can pinto beans, rinsed
  • 1 15 oz can of corn, rinsed 
  • 2 cans rotel
  • 1 15.5 oz can diced tomatoes

How to make it:

1. Spray large stock pot with cooking spray and sauté onions over medium high heat until they start to soften...about 3 minutes or so
2. Add seasonings to onions and mix well
3. Pour in broth and all canned stuff
4. Let simmer for about 30 minutes for all the flavor to come out
5. Enjoy!
This recipe makes 12-one cup servings...And when measuring a serving, don't count the broth-bonus! 

*If you're doing slow carb, eliminate the corn.
