Tortilla Soup

I've been living off of tortilla soup for three days, it's that good. So I finally decided to stop procrastinating and post the recipe already. Here it is:

1 onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 bag frozen corn, rinsed and drained
1 can black beans, drained
1 can chopped green chilis (or 3 fresh chilis, roasted and chopped)
1 can fire roasted tomatoes
1 box veggie broth
2 tbsp chili powder
2 tbsp cumin
salt and pepper to taste

Saute the corn until charred around the edges, then add in the onion and bell pepper, cook until soft. Add in the spices and saute another minute or so, to release the full flavor of the spices. Combine the rest of the ingredients and cook until bubbling. Serve over fresh tortilla chips and top with sour cream, cheese, a slice of lime, chopped avocado, cilantro and hot sauce. Or skip dairy and have it vegan!
