  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • Sea Salt
  • 1 cup Frozen Corn (defrosted)
  • Baked Tortilla Chips (optional)

  1. Place Black Beans, Tomatoes, Veggie Broth, Onion, Lime juice, Potato Flakes, Cumin & Salt in Vitamix
  2. Blend for 6 minutes, until steam escapes from lid
  3. Stir in Corn
  4. Top soup with smashed Tortilla Chips

My2Cents: The Instant Mashed Potatoes act as a thickener for the soup.   Defrost the corn in a colander by running cold water over it.  This recipe was for designed for a Vitamix, which through friction naturally heats ingredients if left to run long enough.  If you are using a traditional blender, simply heat the soup as you normally would.
