If you like a 'bowl of red', you will love TEX-MEX SOUP! It's Chilli con Carne on a spoon!
The minimum of chopping, open a few tins and voila, a soup that's big enough for the hungriest worker.
This is the soup I recommend for my 2-day Slim Plan, try it for a quick boost when a special occasion is looking!
- 1 large onion
- 2 sticks celery
- 1 red pepper
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 tspn each cumin and oregano
- 1/2 tsp chilli powder
- 1.5 litres vegetable stock
- 4 Tbsp tomato puree
- 1 400g tin chopped tomatoes
- 1 400g tin red kidney beans in chilli sauce
- 1 tin sweetcorn
- seasoning to taste
Peel and chop onion, celery and red pepper finely, saute in low calorie spray for 5 minutes. Stir in herbs and spices, pour in stock, tomato puree and tin of tomatoes. Bring to the boil then reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 mins. Drain and rinse beans and sweetcorn, add to pan. Simmer 5-10 mins to heat them through. Blend as much or as little as you like for your choice of texture.
I like to add half the beans and sweetcorn before blending the soup to a thick pureee. Then I add the rest of the beans and sweetcorn for texture. I always double the quantity as it freezes brilliantly or feeds the family for days at a time!
Add additional seasoning if necessary.
* I recommend Tex-Mex Soup for my 2 day Slim Plan. Substitute for your main meals for just 2 days and you will notice a big difference to your weight.
