Tortilla Soup

I threw together this soup last night and the result was good enough to eat two bowls!  You can make it pretty quickly in a pinch or you can go for the longer version.  I put the quick ingredients in the parenthesis.  This is a nice meal served with a side of rice and vegetables.  Enjoy!

Saute in a large pot:

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large chopped onion
1 chopped jalapeno
2 cloves minced garlic
1 teaspoon oregano
2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon salt

Then combine:

2 cans black beans
1 can pureed whole tomatoes (or 2 cans diced tomatoes)
1 small can chopped black olives
handful of chopped cilantro
4 cups of water

Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer 15 minutes.

Garnish with tortilla chips.  You can either use chips from a bag or bake sliced corn tortillas at 450F until crisp.
