salsa vegetable soup ingredients

Ingredients

1 Tbsp olive oil
1 small or medium yellow onion, chopped
1 tsp minced garlic (about 2 cloves)
32 oz vegetable broth
16 oz jar of salsa (chipotle preferred; see note)
1 can black beans, rinsed & drained
1 can pinto beans, rinsed & drained
1 can corn, drained
1 can cut green beans, drained

Directions

Chop the onion and garlic.

While chopping, heat the olive oil in a soup pot or Dutch oven over medium heat for about two minutes.

Add the onion to the pot and saute over medium heat for five minutes, stirring occasionally.

While the onion is sauteing, get everything else ready. Open, rinse, & drain the beans; open & drain the corn & green beans.

Stir the minced garlic in with the sauteed onion. Add all of the other ingredients to the pot, and stir to combine.

Increase the heat under the pot and bring the soup to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve hot.

Optional: Give people the option to top their bowls with a little shredded cheddar (or your favorite non-dairy substitute) when serving… but, it’s tasty with or without cheese.

Note: If you’re using regular instead of chipotle salsa, you may wish also to add a little smoked paprika or chipotle chili powder. This will help you duplicate a bit of that underlying smokiness.

So much flavor, you don’t even need spices

If you’ve been following my recipes and food-related meanderings for a while, you know of my ongoing love affair with spices. Although I couldn’t stay away from the onion and garlic here (it’s soup, after all!), chipotle salsa really provides all the flavor you need in this simple vegetarian pantry soup recipe. Sometimes, it really does pay to keep things easy.

Vegetable soup is the perfect quick weeknight dinner recipe — and, can be a life saver:

  • …on a night when you’re feeling pulled in all different directions at once and haven’t had even a second to think about what’s for dinner.
  • …on a night where fresh veggies are scarce and you aren’t able to run out to the store
  • …on a night where all you really need is comfort food: Stat!
