Emergency Chile Verde Soup



This is total cheater recipe. Though you’d never know it when you took a bite. Comforting with deep rich Mexican flavors, this stew-like soup tastes like it’s been simmering over the stove for hours. In reality, it’s been simmering over the stove for about 10 minutes.

Sometimes even a food blogger like me needs a break from cooking.

Emergency Chile Verde Soup
1 (29 ½ ounce) can Juanita’s Chile Verde Pork & Green Chile Sauce
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chilies & spices
1 (15 ounce) can black beans

Condiment Ideas
1 (3/4 ounce) can El Pato Salsa de Jalapeno
Sour cream
Shredded cheddar
Crushed tortilla chips
Flour or corn tortillas

1. Rinse and drain the black beans and place them in a large saucepan. Drain the diced tomatoes and add them to the black beans. Add the chile verde and cook over medium high heat breaking up the pork with a spoon and stirring occasionally until warmed.

2. Ladle into individual bowls and top with condiments of your choice. Serve with tortillas.

This is a wonderful fast way to enjoy small soups in very little time. Served up with condiments like sour cream, tortilla chips and shredded cheese-it's got to be good.

We think almost exactly alike!! This dish looks great. I can't believe how quick it is to make. Lovely, enticing photos as usual!!

P.S. "jalapeños" has a tilde on the "n". Without it, the pronunciation would be different (i.e., "hah-lah-penh-yo" versus "hah-lah-pe-no", respectively). :D

If I knew how to put a tilde on it from my Mactop I would Memoria. I would also put on in your name too. So sorry!

Ciao Chow Linda said...

brilliant! I agree with you on the taking a break from cooking once in a while thought.

Chef E said...

Ha I love this, and the E'spanole lesson, vu soupa mi soupa, okay that is a little mix of Franish...

Reminds me, the title of the chili packets they sell for chili 'Red Alarm', but more of 'out the exit door' kind of post!

Love it, you are so creative!

This is a GREAT recipe to have in my menu rotation...thanks for sharing...sounds delicious.

Sook said...

10 minutes?? That is super fast! :) Looks delicious!

l'optimiste said...

now THAT is my kind of recipe! Fast, barely any cooking involved, and it's soup...looove soup...in the UK they are obsessed with tomato and basil soup. Ugh. So making my own will be super!

And for your tildes:
The tilde accent marks are found on the upper and lower case letters A,N, and O as in à ã Ñ ñ Õ õ
On the Mac, hold down 'Opt' while typing the letter 'n' and the letter to be accented to create characters with tilde accent marks.

For the acute accent [on Memória], Press Option + e, and then press the letter you want accented. For upper case, press Option + e, and then press Shift + the letter you want accented.

Voilà! Easy as soup ;o)

Hola Laura, the soup looks awesome as well as the picture. I think I can make this. It seems that I am getting a computer and tilde lessons here also.I never use the "tildes" because I don't know how to find them either.

Dawn said...

I hear ya sister. There are definitely nights when I want to have just a teensy bit of Sandra Lee in me (although a bit healthier). And the funny thing is sometimes those are the best recipes.

CinnamonAndSass said...

Um, this looks so delicious. I have an overwhelming urge to throw some browned hamburger in there (I have that urge a lot...I think it comes from growing up in the Midwest).

figtree said...
