Tortilla Soup with Black Beans

Are you ready to get healthy….?

Is there a better combination than soup and salad? Okay, maybe there is. But a better HEALTHY combo? I don’t think so.

I thought this soup was pretty good. The spices were good (albeit I added hot sauce and more chili powder than instructed) and the beans and corn together were on point. It was a little tomato-y for me, I might even add another can of beans next time… but then I don’t want it to be too bean-y. Beany? Whatever.

I didn’t like the tortilla chips at all, they were soggy and the texture was too much for me to handle. I am a HUGE texture freak.

The hubby of course mentioned the fact that there was no meat to be had in this meal. And then dumped ham cubes in his salad.
I am kind of surprised he didn’t fry up some bacon. And kind of disappointed. But then I remember I don’t like bacon. But I like the smell…

Does this make me unAmerican? :/

I’m totally baking some chicken to go with the soup for leftovers.

Don’t judge me.
