Soups and Stews Phase 2 - Mexican Vegetarian soup!

View Full Version : Mexican Vegetarian soup!

1 can Eden Organic Black beans(undrained)
1 can diced tomatoes
1 small can diced green chilis
3tsp ranch dressing mix
6oz morningstar veg. crumbles
4.5oz corn(I used frozen we had from the garden) [note that corn is only okay no more than one serving a month--make sure it doesn't spike cravings in you. Could substitute zucchini instead.]
2c water
1tbs cumin
1tbs chili powder
.5tsp paprika
.5tsp ground red pepper
1.5tsp onion powder
.5tsp garlic powder
(I am estimating these spices this is just what I use to make taco seasoning, you can use prepackaged but I would use reduced sodium if so.)

1 bag quick-cook brown rice

Do not drain beans or tomatoes. bring all ingredients to a boil except rice. Boil rice separately, then add to soup after 10 minutes. I have put mine in the crock pot so it can simmer on low a couple hours… Not necessary but I am not having lunch until then and we are having company so now it will be ready when we are!:carrot:

I went ahead and used the corn because I pretty much used 1 serving in the entire recipe and it made 4 large servings... But zuchinni would be good too I am sure!
