Do you ever have those days when it feels like there isÂ NOTHINGÂ in the house for lunch? Â You dig and dig through the cabinets and fridge and just don’t see anything. This happens one to many times at our house.
My sister was visiting and I was whining that I couldn’t find anything for lunch. I yelled out “hey, what can we make with black beans??”
She thought about it for a minute, asked if I had any corn, tomatoes and chicken broth, which, surprisingly I did and said she would whip up some soup. Â Even better, she was willing to make lunch. Sweet!!! It’s not very often someone else makes lunch for me.
Oh, look at all that yummy goodness! This soup was quick and easy to make. She had it cooking on the stove within 5 minutes and then we just had to wait for it to simmer for a bit to meld all they tasty flavors together. After 30 minutes I couldn’t wait any longer and dug into the soup.
It was so good! Em even liked it. Lets just say there wasn’t much left over after we had lunch. I would definitely make this soup again. You can top with avocado, cheese, sour cream, and/or chips. I tried it with both chips and sour cream. They were both excellent!! Next time I’ll add some avocado…swoon.
