1 can of Black Beans
1 can of Pinto Beans
1 can of Refried Beans
1 can of Corn
2 cups of Vegetable Stock
1 Jar of Chunk Salsa
2 cups of Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Put everything but the cheese in a large pot & bring to a boil. Let the soup simmer & add more stock or water if it gets too thick (although I like it a little thick). After a half hour or so, right before you serve it, add most of the cheese.
Stir until the cheese melts. When you serve it in the bowls, sprinkle with a little more cheese for garnish.
I serve this with homemade tortilla chips, tacos or fajitas or quesadillas or spanish rice, etc.
To make homemade tortilla chips:
Spray a cookie sheet with oil (Pam), cut corn tortillas in to strips, place them on the cookie sheet & spray with Pam again. Bake in the oven at 350 until crispy. They are really yummy! Much better than store bought!
Your birdies will love the soup! And they will go crazy for the tortilla chips!!
