I've been pouring through cookbooks lately looking for different meal ideas. The same recipes get old after time. As I flip through cookbook after cookbook, I look for ways to lighten the recipes and make them healthier. I stumbled across an easy Refried Bean Soup and thought I could lighten it up a bit!
I made enough for three big meals for my guys. I froze one batch, we ate one, and I have leftovers for lunch.
2 Cans of Fat Free Refried Beans
2 Can of Black Beans, Rinsed and Drained
1 Can of While Corn, Drained
2 Cans of Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes
1 Cup of Organic Salsa
2 Cups of Beef Stock
1/2 Sliced Jalapeno
1 Cup of Water
You literally put all of that in a big soup pot and bring to a boil. That's it. Done!
I topped Caleb's soup with some shredded cheddar cheese and crumbled tortilla chips and he loved it!
This is probably one of the easiest, quickest soups you can throw together! But it has tons of flavor, is pretty healthy, and super simple. You could add some shredded cooked chicken, black olives, or sour cream to change it up a bit.
