Last night I made chicken and rice with fajita spices. Since I have a bit of it left over, I'm going to re-purpose my leftovers into another meal =)
For this soup, I do have a recipe. And sometimes I actually follow it.
Here's what you need:
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 red onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
a mix of peppers- I use bell peppers because the kids don't like spice
2 large carrots, sliced
2 tsp ground cumin
Saute the above in the olive oil until soft.
4 cups veggie or chicken stock
2 cups cooked black beans (with the cooking water)
1 can diced tomatoes
1 tsp dried oregano
Simmer 20 minutes.
Then stir in:
2 cups shredded chicken
2 cups corn kernels (can be frozen)
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Heat through. Serve with a variety of toppings. We like cheese, sour cream, avocados, black olives...
This recipe can easily be made into a vegetarian dish. Just use veggie broth, leave out the chicken and add half a kombu strip broken up =)
