My husband had a version of this soup when he was in Mexico. He came home and made it for us and the kids loved it! I have adjusted it to make it quick and easy to make. It is our "quick, we need a meal" solution to help avoid the fast food trap on busy nights.

  • 3 can pinto beans, canned, organic
  • 1 pkg. hot dog, beef, uncured, nitrite-free
  • 1 onion, any type, organic
  • 1 chili pepper, jalapeno, fresh, organic
  • 1 bch. cilantro, bunch, fresh, organic
  • 1 can tomatoes, diced, canned, organic
  • 14 1/2 fl oz. chicken broth, organic, free-range
  • 1 bacon, uncured, nitrate-free, organic, pastured

In a large pot, saute onion, jalapeno, and hot dog pieces (or bacon) together until onion and jalapeno are soft (or until bacon is done if using bacon). Add 3/4 of the fresh cilantro and cook a couple of minutes. Add undrained tomatoes, undrained beans, and chicken broth. Bring all to a boil then reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes. Serve with remaining fresh cilantro sprinkled on top of each serving. You can also add a dab of sour cream on top of each serving along with the cilantro.
