Black Bean Soup

Here is a good recipe for garden goodies. Feel free to extemporize.

1 T (or less) olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1/4 green pepper, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 T fresh oregano (or 1 t dried)
1 jalapeno pepper, minced
2 c. diced tomatoes
1 15-oz. can black beans
1 c. corn kernels
1 c. cooked rice
Salt and black pepper to taste
In a 2-3 quart sauce pan, saute onions and peppers in the olive oil until almost tender. Add garlic and oregano and saute another 30-60 seconds. Add the rest of the ingredients (and optionally a little water, as this soup is not very soupy) and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes, long enough that tomatoes and corn are cooked to desired state.

I like to eat this with crushed Doritos (nacho cheese flavor).
