So if chicken tinga tacos aren’t your jam this Cindo de Mayo, I got another option for you: super easy, flavorful, quick (and vegan!) one pot black bean tortilla soup.
SO many veggies, so much deliciousness. What kind of veggies you might ask? Welp, we got onion, carrot, celery, bell pepper, tomatoes, and fire roasted corn. No dairy, no gluten, no meat, and still so tasty!
I also dressed up the broth base for this soup with some chipotle peppers in adobo sauce and a whole jalapeno for a little heat plus tons of spices.
Add a litte avocado, fresh sliced chives and a cilantro garnish for extra yums.
