Black Bean Nacho Soup
I have a few loves in food. I love dips with cream cheese and I love soups. Each weekend, I try and make something that I can take for lunches during the week. Lately, I have been making a new soup each week. I have a tendency to have a working lunch which is me eating and walking at the same time. Sometimes, I am walking building to building and am outside talking to people. Soup is something I can heat up and take with me and eat on the go.
This week I made Black Bean Nacho Soup. This soup has the cheesy flavor with an added slightly spicy kick. The green chiles add this flavor. If you want more of a “kick”, add in some chopped jalapenos to the soup .
If you want to keep this vegetarian, use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth.
Frugal Cooking Tips:
- Keep a price point for stock up on canned good items. My local store runs a $.39 canned vegetable sale twice a year. During that time, I stock up on canned carrots, peas, spinach and beans.
- Always use your store card at checkout. Not only will you get added discounts, most store cards now have an added program to benefit schools. No kids, pick a school to allow your purchases to benefit.
- Make use of e-coupons to load to your store coupon. It is easy to do and can be done as you are in the store.
- Can or freeze your own sweet corn.
