3 servings (serving size: 1 2/3 cups soup and 1 lime slice)

For a vegetarian supper, you can substitute vegetable broth for the chicken broth.

How to Make It

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion, cumin, garlic, and oregano; sauté 1 1/2 minutes. Stir in corn, pepper, broth, beans, and tomatoes; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 10 minutes. Serve with lime slices.

This was good, it turned out to be a little spicy. Very hearty and filling, great for a snowy night!

This soup is so easy and quick, perfect for a busy weeknight. And most of the ingredients are stuff you'd have on hand. You can add cooked chicken chunks. Another reviewer said it was bland, and it's not at all! I have used taco seasoning in place of the cumin before, and even added an additional can of beans. Serve with tortilla chips and cornbread.

This is a great little soup. I added a bit of chili (flakes and powder) to mine and used a jar of salsa instead of tomatoes because it is what I had in the pantry. Lovely served with cornbread.

This soup was moderately bland. It just lacked a lot of pizazz. I like the nutrition facts and have no problem with any specific ingredient -- I was actually surprised that I didn't like it. For the most part, it just seemed like beans and corn in a very murky, bland broth. Maybe it needs a little salt? We were not very enthused about the leftovers at lunch the next day.

Used fresh onion, garlic & oregano. Very easy to put together, though (for our taste) the onion required a much longer simmer time than recommended. Good with cheese quesadillas. Will add four shrimp to the leftovers to make a small first-course for dinner.
