Every spoonful of this hearty, smoky soup is packed with the flavors of Mexico and the American Southwest. Tomatillos are a close relative of the tomato and have long been a staple of Mexican soups and sauces, adding vibrant green color and tart acidity. Poblano peppers are also native to Mexico and have a natural smokiness and mild piquancy. Black beans and corn round out fullness of flavor, while crumbly queso fresco adds a mild, creamy finish.

Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 Baking Sheet
  • 1 Medium Pot
  • Step 1 - Prepare the Ingredients
    1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with foil. Thoroughly rinse produce and pat dry. Stem poblano peppers, core, halve lengthwise, and cut into ½" dice. Remove husk on tomatillos, rinse again, cut tops off, and quarter. There's a sticky residue underneath the tomatillo husk, which is why a second rinse is needed. Slice radishes into 1/8” rounds. Drain and rinse black beans. Peel and halve red onion. Cut into ½” dice. Mince garlic. Crumble queso fresco. Quarter tortillas.

  • Step 2 - Char the Vegetables and Start the Soup

    Char the Vegetables and Start the Soup

    Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Add tomatillos and poblano peppers and cook without stirring for 8 minutes. This will char the tomatillos and peppers and bring out more flavor. Add garlic and red onion and cook for 2 minutes. Crush tomatillos in pot using a masher or slotted spoon.

  • Step 3 - Bake Tortilla Chips

    Bake Tortilla Chips

    While vegetables are charring, place tortilla chips on prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with 2 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Place in oven and toast for 8-10 minutes, or until chips become crispy. Remove from oven and set aside.

  • Step 4 - Finish the Soup

    Finish the Soup

    Add 2 cups water, vegetable base, and a pinch of salt and pepper to pot and bring to a boil. Tear 4 tortilla chips into small pieces and add to soup. They will dissolve and thicken soup. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook for 15 minutes. Stir in black beans and frozen corn and simmer an additional 3-5 minutes until warmed through.

  • Step 5 - Plate the Dish
