This is the easiest soup ever! Tastes too good to be this simple.
One 15-ounce can reduced-sodium black beans, undrained
1½ cups frozen corn kernels
¾ cup salsa
½ cup water
½ cup finely diced red bell pepper
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (juice of 1 lime)
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
¼ cup shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
¼ cup reduced-fat sour cream or plain Greek yogurt, optional
Fresh chopped cilantro, optional
In a medium saucepan, combine the beans, corn, salsa, water, bell pepper, lime juice, chili powder, and cumin. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, 10 minutes.
Serve in individual bowls and top with the cheese and sour cream and cilantro as desired.
