Spicy Pumpkin Soup

Here is a recipe a friend made for us for dinner tonight. My kids loved it and so did I! Not to mention it is super easy!

1 tsp. oil
1 T. each-minced garlic and chili powder
1/2 tsp. cumin
4 c. broth
1 can black beans (original recipe calls for chickpeas, black beans are better)
1 can solid pack pumpkin
1 c. corn kernels
3/4 c. bottled medium spicy salsa

Garnish: cheese, sour cream, avocado, or whatever else you think would be good

1. Heat oil in a pan. Add garlic, chili powder and cumin. Stir over medium heat for 1 minute.
2. Add broth; stir in beans, pumpkin, corn and salsa. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes to develop flavors.  Serve with garnishes.

Taco Pizza

Check out this recipe for Taco Pizza. I made it on a whim and happened to have all the ingredients.

I didn't use cheese or meat and it was still really good!
