Makes 4 Servings
This is the easiest soup ever! Tastes too good to be this simple.

One 15-ounce can reduced-sodium black beans, undrained

1½ cups frozen corn kernels

¾ cup salsa

½ cup water

½ cup finely diced red bell pepper

2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (juice of 1 lime)

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon ground cumin

¼ cup shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese

¼ cup reduced-fat sour cream or plain Greek yogurt, optional

Fresh chopped cilantro, optional

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the beans, corn, salsa, water, bell pepper, lime juice, chili powder, and cumin. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, 10 minutes.
  2. Serve in individual bowls and top with the cheese and sour cream and cilantro as desired.
