Hey there! I know you are reading this because you saw the title and you were like, “Give me Tortilla Soup”! And how do I know this? Because everyone LOVES tortilla soup and you are going to super love this Chipotle Black Bean Tortilla Soup because it is crazy easy!
The recipe comes from A Couple Cooks new cookbook, Pretty Simple Cooking and the name of this book doesn’t lie. If you feel less than confident in the kitchen, this book is for you. It is stocked with uncomplicated recipes for the food you want to eat. That being said, if you feel confident in the kitchen, this book is still for you because it is also loaded with lots of helpful kitchen tips and information that we all need. Like, for example, I had no idea there was such a thing as frozen FIRE-ROASTED corn! Mind blown! How have I been walking right past such a glorious flavor-booster every time I go to Trader Joe’s (which by the way is many, many times a week).
Anyhoo, this soup is all the things you want in a weeknight meal and is emblematic of the kinds of recipe you will find in Sonja and Alex’s cookbook: healthy, filling, tasty, and easy. I love that it took me no time at all to make and had enough leftovers for lunches for the rest of the week. This is definitely a recipe I’ll be making again and again.
Word to the wise, Pretty Simple Cooking is out now (I was at Barnes and Noble yesterday and I saw on the shelf with my own two eyes) so go get yourself a copy. You are going to find yourself drooling over every page.
