As promised here's the recipe for that to die for soup I made the other night and served with my Green Bites. Leftovers for lunch the next day were even better. You could also easily freeze any leftovers to make for an easy meal the following week.

It was quick and easy to make. Once you make homemade soups you never want to eat soup from a can again.

Shelly's Kidney Bean Soup

1 Yellow Onion, diced
2 Green Onions, diced
2 cloves of Garlic, minced
1 teaspoon Cumin
1/2 teaspoon Oregano
1/2 teaspoon Southwest Seasonings
2 (14 oz.) cans Red Kidney Beans, rinsed and drained
1 (14 oz.) can Chopped Tomatoes, with juice
1 (15 oz.) can Chicken Broth
1 1/2 cups Water
2 Tablespoons Fresh Cilantro
1 Tablespoon Tomato Paste
1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
a few twists of Black Pepper

Toppings:
Avocado, sliced
Cilantro
Shelly's Spicy Yogurt Dip

Saute onions till golden. Add garlic and cook 1 minute more. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 20 minutes. Puree soup.

A groovy gadget like this works great or you can do it in batches in a blender. Garnish with yogurt dip, avocado and cilantro.

Full of cholesterol lowering fiber, protein, iron. Oodles of vitamins. I love beans.
