“A very simple Mexican soup dish with spices that can be adjusted to "heat it up" or tone it down. I've had this recipe and love it, I don't know who it is by but it was published in a local newspaper.”
6 bowls

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. (remember spices can be adjusted to taste).
  2. In soup pot, combine all ingredients up to the sausage bringing to a boil, cover and reduce heat to simmer for 10 minutes.
  3. Slice sausage in 1/2 lengthwise then thinly slice into pieces.
  4. Add the sausage, pasta, corn& black beans to the broth mixture, cover& simmer another 10 to 15 minutes (or until vermicelli is cooked).
  5. Stir in lime juice.
  6. Ladle into bowls and garnish each with thinly sliced avacado (or you can chunk if you prefer) and grated cheese.
  7. Note: I like to serve this with hot Mexican corn bread and a small dinner salad.
