Easy Vegetarian Black Bean Tortilla Soup

Total Time

Quick, hearty soup with a bit of a kick. Can be made Vegan by omitting sour cream. Tame the spice down by substituting diced tomatoes for the Ro-Tel. I serve the soup with corn chips, but tri-colored tortilla strips add some visual appeal. I like to leave the black beans whole, but you can make it creamy by mashing the beans.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sautee onion in vegetable oil until onions turn translucent. Add vegetable broth, Ro-Tel, black beans, corn, garlic salt, chili powder, and cumin. Heat to near boiling. Serve in soup bowl and garnish with 1 tbs. of sour cream and sprinkle of fresh cilantro.

Very tasty, healthy and easy to put together. I made no changes to the recipe. I love that this uses items that I most always have in the house. The leftovers taste even better. Thanx!

Excellent soup. I doubled the recipe because I like to have left overs. I only added one can of Rotel and it was still quite spicy which I love. Thanks.

Too, too easy. Perfect for a mom on the go and I don't have to stock a gourmet kitchen. I'm always looking for good vegetarian dishes that can satisfy the non-vegetarians in my family. Thank you for an excellent soup.
