Who knew a cheap packet of instant ramen could make Mexican-style tortilla soup?
1 package chicken-flavored instant ramen
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/4 onion, chopped
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1 1/2 cups water
1/4 cup crushed or diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon corn
1 tablespoon black beans
Pinch of black pepper
Add olive oil to a medium sauce pot, and add garlic, onions and cumin. Sauté for 1-2 minutes.
Add water, soup powder, black beans, tomatoes, corn, pepper and chicken. Bring to a boil, then add ramen and cook for 3 minutes.
Garnish with cilantro, jalapeños, sour cream, lime and tortilla chips.
