  • 4 Ingredients
  • 1 tbsp olive oil 1 brown or white onion, diced 1 red bell pepper (capsicum), diced 1 can (15oz / 400g) black beans (see notes) 1 can (15oz / 400g) can sweet corn 2 garlic cloves, minced 2 tsp oregano (dried) 2 tsp cumin 1 tsp paprika ¼ tsp chilli (optional) 2 cups shredded Mexican pulled pork (Pork Carnitas) (or shredded chicken) 24oz / 680g tomato puree passata (or crushed tomatoes - see notes) 4 cups (1 litre/2 pints) chicken or vegetable broth / stock Salt and pepper Toppings (optional) Corn chips Sour cream Grated cheese Cilantro / coriander leaves Avocado, diced Instructions Heat the oil in a large saucepan over high heat. Add the pulled pork and cook for 1 minute until parts of it are browned, then remove from the saucepan. Do this step even if you are using shredded chicken or another meat. Add garlic and onion, sauté until onion becomes translucent (2 minutes), then add the capsicum (bell pepper) and cook for 1 minute until softened. Return the pulled pork into the saucepan and add all other ingredients except salt and pepper. Stir to scrap the brown bits from the pulled pork off the bottom of the pan to mix in with the soup flavours. Bring to boil then turn down heat slightly and allow to simmer rapidly for 3 minutes so the flavours can come together. If you are using crushed tinned tomatoes instead of passata, let it simmer for a further 5 minutes to let the tomatoes breakdown a bit. If the soup gets too thick to your liking, just add a bit more water. Do a taste test, then season with salt and pepper. It is important to season last because different stock brands have different levels of saltiness. Serve with toppings of choice. The more toppings = more delicious! Notes 1. Passata is pureed tomatoes, a thick juice consistency, not a paste consistency. You can substitute the passata with 28oz/800g crushed tomatoes.2. You can substitute black beans with red kidney beans. 3.2.2646
