Hearty Mexican Soup

 After a night of howling winds, flapping siding, and a bit of snow, I needed something warm and hearty.  As usual, I turned to the FatFree Vegan.com for ideas.  What I ended up with is a compilation of 2 recipes (links below) and what I had in the cupboard.

1 bell pepper

2 large cloves garlic

1 onion

½ jalapeño – seeded

All chopped and sautéed

Add 1 can no-salt fire roasted diced tomatoes

1 can fat free refried beans

1 can black beans with liquid

1 can water

1 can vegetarian broth

1 pack Goya (fake) ham flavor

1 t. cumin

1½ t. smoked paprika

1 t. Mexican chili powder

½ t. oregano

 Add 4 c. packed chopped kale

1 bag frozen gumbo vegetables

1 cup leftover rice

Cook about 20-30 minutes.

Serve with Texas Pete and sprinkle on some crystallized lemon juice (this really makes the flavor pop).

 (Just realized, I made a Mexican soup much like this once already and posted it! LOL)
