2 cans black beans {do not drain!}
2 T. ground cumin
2 t. ground coriander

chipotle tabasco, to taste {optional}
salt & pepper, to taste

1. heat a soup pot over medium-high heat with a coating of olive oil.
2. add the onion, garlic, jalapeno, red pepper, celery, & bay leaf to the pot. cook until tender.
3. add corn & black beans, along with cumin & coriander. warm through.
4. add 2-4 cups of vegetable stock to desired consistency. {we like it with less liquid.} add hot sauce plus salt & pepper, to taste.
