This great soup can be on the table in less than 30 minutes.It's so easy, and I've made it so many times, that I memorized the recipe! Serve with lots of whole-wheat bread for dipping, mmm.

  1. Soften the onions, garlic and pepper in water for 5-10 minutes. Prepare other ingredients.
  2. Add remaining ingredients except salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook, mostly covered, 10-15 minutes.
  3. In 2 batches, puree the soup in a food processor until creamy(haven't tried the blender, though that would probably work too). Add salt to taste, if desired.
  4. Return to pot and keep over low heat until ready to serve.

Excellent! Used a couple sprinkles of habanero instead of the jalapenos, and 1 small can of Italian style tomato paste instead of fresh/canned tomatoes. I didn't blend it, but I boiled it down to a thick consistency and ate with corn tortillas.

I'm in love! We recently bought 25# of dry pinto beans and have been looking for recipes to use them in! This is it! This was so good!! We topped it off with some cheddar and a dolop of plain yogurt. Delicious!!!
