I made a few tiny adjustment like I skipped the corn tortilla and used fat free sour cream and Spicy Pepperjack cheese! and of course made it ten times spicier then called for with Red crushed peppers and cayenne pepper! ( love me some spice!)
2 tbsp olive oil
1 large red onion, chopped
6 garlic cloves, minced
3 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
1 tbsp cumin seed
1 cup frozen corn kernels
2 29 ounce cans vegetable broth
2 16 ounce cans kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro, packed
1 cup shredded low-fat Monterey Jack cheese
6 corn tortillas
1/4 cup low-fat sour cream
Add olive oil, onion, garlic, jalapeno and cumin seed to a large pot over medium heat, stir constantly for 5 minutes. Add corn, vegetable broth, beans and cilantro. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
Heat oven to 450 degrees. Coat cookie sheet with cooking spray, place tortillas on sheet and spray tortillas with cooking spray. Cook approximately 10 minutes. Cut tortillas into strips.
Top soup with cheese, tortilla strips and a dollop of sour cream. Garnish with lime.
Makes 8 servings of vegetarian tortilla soup.
