5 Minute Meal - "Spiced" Black Bean Soup

Are you ready for this?  Yes...I did say a 5 Minute Meal!  And guess what??  It's pretty healthy too!!  Now, just to be clear, this probably isn't my "go-to" for the 21 Day Fix meal plans (FOR SURE), simply because it would require too many yellow (carb) containers since the base of it is black bean soup.  However, now that we are into soccer season and 3 kids with practice and a hubby who coaches one of them, our family dinners are not as easy to come by.  So, I made this last night for a quick meal after practice and I had some leftovers that I picked from!  So it all worked out.

I will warn you...this is super delicious, but only makes enough for 4 good sized servings of soup!

5 Minute Healthy Meal - Spiced Black Bean Soup, Julie Little Fitness, Are you ready, this is quick!

  • Trader Joe's Latin Style Black Bean Soup 
  • 1/2 cup of fresh salsa
  • 1 can of chicken breast (if you have grilled chicken already prepared you can add this instead, but this made my meal super quick and easy!)
  • 1/2 cup (or more) of frozen corn

Place all the ingredients into a pot and cook until warm (or hot, whichever you prefer).  

You can top with cheese or avocado or cilantro if you want to spice it up even more!

There you have it!  Moms I know we ALL need quick and delicious meals on the fly!  Here ya go!  :)

If you are following the 21 Day Fix, this probably isn't my first choice of meals (I'd rather have my yellow used elsewhere).  I would probably count this as 2 yellows, 1/2 red for a cup of soup.
