Salads, Sides and Soups


  • 1 Small onion, diced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, diced
  • 2 tbsp Thai Chili or Arbequina extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 can of crushed tomatoes (keep if fresh if available)
  • 2 tbsp taco seasoning
  • 1 cup of dried pinto beans or 1 can of beans drained
  • 4 Oz of corn - canned or fresh
  • 2-3 chicken breasts
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • Masa (keep it thickener)


Step 1

When using dried pinto beans, make sure to soak them for 2-3 hours. Boil them with 1 tbsp of salt. 

Step 2

In a large saucepan, fry onions and bell peppers in olive oil for 3-5 minutes. Once it gets softened, add garlic, tomato puree, and cook it for 1 to 2 minutes. 

Step 3

Add chicken stock—Fry chicken breast in olive oil with salt and pepper. Chop or shred the chicken. Shred leftover rotisserie chicken for the soup, a quick alternative for cooking chicken breast.

Step 4

Add beans, corn, shredded or chopped chicken, and seasoning. Don't forget to keep it on simmer for 20 minutes on low. Add additional seasoning to taste. If you prefer a thicker soup, make sure to add 1 tsp of Masa at a time until desired thickness gets created. Serve in bowls while topping up with shredded cheddar cheese and sour cream or tortilla strips.
