Yummy Tortilla Soup

Happy First Day of Autumn Guys & Gals!

Get those cozy hoodies out, grab a hot chocolate...and lets begin our count down to Halloween! 37 Days my friends...37! Lets talk about something else that we should totally have on those wonderful Autumn nights...

It's all about soup. 
I love soup! Super simple, hearty and delicious! Give me a bowl of soup...any soup and i will slurp it down...easy. 

A little Mexican flair for you today, well...what an English gal assumes is Mexican. Tortilla Soup. Creamy, beanie, tangy soup...with a crunchy cheesy top...heck. YES. Goodness i love this soup! 
This recipe makes quite a lot, so maybe have a soup party? Or store the left overs in the fridge for lunch the next day...and makes alot.

My boyfriend is wearing odd you KNOW today is going to be crazy! It's the kinda day where you know soup would just make it crazier...and a Cupcake...a crazy Cupcake! 

We challenged ourselves yesterday with our pizza dinner...i slept pretty good after that! So we need something that doesn't really need too much work for today. No need to be fancy every night! We aren't Bree from Desperate Housewives...that fiery fancy bitch. 

Ingredients for this super simple soup...

* 2 tbsp Butter
* 1 whole onion cut up into little chunks! 
* 1 tbsp garlic
* 2 tbsps flour 
* 3 cups Chicken/Vegetable stock
* 3 cups Fat Free Half & Half
* 2 tbsps Taco Seasoning
* 1 small jar Salsa (as hot as you like, i stuck to mild)
* 1 can Sweet Corn
* 1 can Creamed Sweet Corn
* 1 can Kidney Beans 
* 1 can Pinto Beans 
* 1 can Black Beans 
* 1 can Black Eyed Peas 
* 2 tsp Cumin 
* 2 tsp Cilantro

1. In a large cooking pot on a low/medium heat, add butter. Let it melt, then add onion and garlic. Cook until onions start to brown. 

2. Add the flour into the onion mix and stir! (This is to thicken the soup) cook for 1 minute then add stock and half & half. Heat until warm, don't let it bubble! 

3. Once the stock has heated, add the taco seasoning, salsa, cumin & all the cans of beans...YUM! 

4. Cook the soup on medium heat allow everything to heat up. About 5 - 10 mins...just keep an eye on it. Smellin' good huh! Add the cilantro.
