I have the easist soup recipe for all you spicy food lovers out there!

Not unbearably spicy, but with just enough zing to be so flavorful with only 5 ingredients 🙂

  1. 1 onion, chopped
  2. 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  3. 1 can fire roasted tomatoes w/ chipotle peppers (Muir Glen)
  4. 2 cups black beans
  5. 1 cup frozen mixed greens (kale, collards, etc. – I used this Whole Foods brand)
  • 1 tblsp olive oil
  • water, 1 can full (use tomato can)
  • salt & pepper

First cook the onions in olive oil over medium heat, about 5 minutes or until soft but not browned.  Then add garlic for another minute or two.

Next add your beans.  I used the dried batch that I cooked up last weekend, they freeze wonderfully.  If you use canned, just make sure to drain them.

Next add your frozen mixed greens.  This was just the end of a bag that had been stashed away in the freezer.  If you want to use more, go for it 🙂

Lastly, add the tomatoes.

I have never bought these before but must say that they are wonderful!!!

Check out all that fire-roasted goodness 😀

Perfect amount of spice… and tons o’ flava!

Salt and pepper to your liking too.

Cover this and let it simmer away for 20 minutes.  If it’s too thin for your liking, just remove the lid and let some of the liquid cook off.

Bright, colorful and beautifullllll.

To serve, I placed a warm tortilla into a bowl to make a serving shell…

Then spooned in the warm, spicy soup!

The flavorful soup soaks all into the tortilla, which you can break off and eat with each spoonful!

Healthy, easy and delicious.  Win, win and win 😀

I’d highly recommend trying this for a quick meal.  It has tons of flavor and takes less than 30 minutes start to finish!

Do you have any 5 ingredient recipes?


  1. I love a good, easy bean soup! Looks awesome! I love the idea of putting the tortilla in the bowl!

  2. Oh my gosh!! I do stuff with onions + beans + tomatoes all the time, it’s like a staple for me, but I’ve never tried mixing greens into it! What a great way to get in some more superfoods! 🙂 I can’t wait to try this!

  3. I love the idea of putting the tortilla in the bowl! Genius! And any soup with black beans is totally delicious. This is one of my favorite minimal ingredient meals: http://www.itzyskitchen.com/2008/08/fast-sloppy-lentils.html

  4. This looks incredibly good! And I love the tortilla in the bowl -very clever!

  5. Um….LOVE THIS. The recipes that involve less than 6 ingredients?? TOTALLY right up my alley! And the tortilla in a bowl? Genius!

  6. What a great idea to add the tortilla to the bowl!

    I’m not the biggest spice fan so I would probably use regular tomatoes with mild green chilis.

    I love making a soup of 1 can refried beans, veggie stock and salsa – so simple and delicious.

  7. I am adding this to my menu plan for this week! I have a ton of Muir Glen that I got FREE this week at Whole Foods. You can get FREE Muir Glen too by following my coupon match-up. It’s really easy.

  8. Oh wow that looks so good!
