bean and tortilla soup

It’s sweater weather but not yet parka weather, so if you’re you’re looking for a soup that manages to be light and fresh and warm and satisfying all at the same time, then this Bean and Tortilla Soup is for you. As written, this recipe is for a vegetarian soup with a spicy, tomatoey base broth with carrots, bell pepper, onions and whatever beans you want bobbing around in it (I used tinned black beans). Then you can go nuts with the toppings— load it up with whatever you’d like. I went with cherry tomatoes, scallions, tons of cilantro, avocado, crumbled feta and lime juice. Your soup bowl is the perfect landing spot for those lingering bits and pieces of cooked stuff in the fridge, too, even if that stuff is something like chicken, sausage or shrimp. Of course this is tortilla soup, so don’t forget some chips to go with! I sprinkled over those broken bits at the bottom of the bag that are too small to hold salsa or guac but make perfect soup crunchies.

For the recipe, see Everyday Dorie by Dorie Greenspan, and head over to Cook the Book Fridays to see how the group liked this one.

  2. Really stunning looking soup. Wonder how you cut the avocado so perfectly. I manage to smash it out of shape more often than not.

  3. It isn’t even quite sweater weather here in CA but surprisingly this soup was great even on a warmish day! We loved it too. Yours looks picture perfect!

  4. This weather is WEIRD and this soup is perfect for it – light but comforting at the same time! Yours is so pretty!

  5. Yes, the perfect soup for sweater weather! It’ll be good in parka weather too.
    Thanks for the WordPress advice. I’ll have to write a post sooner than a month from now and try it out. Happy Fall!

  6. hahha! If you were here in Edmonton we moved right into parka weather! or more like full on winter jackets and winter tires had to be put on (as there was black ice last monday while driving to pottery!). I’m glad you are still having the fall weather! I love the asthetics of your photos as always Steph! so pretty! I completely loaded mine up to the point that my hubby was saying..good thing your hand made bowls aren’t any bigger as you won’t be able to finish it soon!

  7. Love how you described the weather- sweater but not yet parka 🙂 We are getting some warm days still in Pennsylvania but many have a chill at night, so this was spot on for us. But honestly we adored this recipe so much I will make it at any time of year ! Your bowl looks amazing, especially those perfect avocados. A keeper recipe for sure.

  8. Although we are past sweater weather and have moved into the very cold and snowy parka weather, this tortilla soup is a perfect lunch or dinner meal right now. What I like most about it is it is so light. It’s also portion friendly so I can halve the recipe and still get a perfect result. Your photo is beautiful. It made me want to make the soup all over again.

  9. Such a colorful bowl of soup. We loved this one too and I am so glad for the sweater weather.
