Bean and Tortilla Soup

July 1, 2014

This wonderful Bean and Tortilla Soup contain absolutely no Meat or Corn kernels. The wonderful Flavor comes from Fresh Diced organic Tomatoes, Tuscan Beans, Red Kidney Beans, Black Beans, garden fresh Cilantro, Organic  Jalapeno Peppers, and various spices.

As the heat washes over Sunny Florida, I am always looking for a NEW way to enjoy my favorite comfort foods, of course, I also I love light and Easy.  This recipe for Bean and Tortilla Soup is also the perfect meal for Summer, no heavy meats just plain goodness in a bowl.
