2-3 cups water
1 medium sized onion chopped
2 serrano chilies diced

1/2 Tbs cumin powder
2-3 cloves garlic

2 cups corn (frozen or fresh)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
salt and black pepper to taste
limes for garnish
Heat soup pan with 2 Tbs canola. Saute the onions, garlic and green chilies. Next add ground meat and saute.
Then season with salt, pepper , ground cumin, red chili flakes. Next add salsa, blacked beans and corn.
it melts into the soup. Simmer on stove for 20-25 minutes. Check seasoning. Finally stir in cheddar cheese and melt well.
This soup is great with some corn or tortilla chips on top. Serve with wedges of lime so anyone can add some brightness to the soup before eating. Enjoy. Serves 4-6.
