Despite the fact that we've had to turn on the ac recently, we had a day of rain. And nothing is nicer than a day of rain (and thunder and lightning!) than coming home to a hot soup. We've been on a mushroom and corn kick lately, so this fit right in.
Mexican Lime Soup
One onion, chopped
One package sliced mushrooms
2 bay leaves
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 containers vegetable stock (about 8 cups, total)
One can diced tomatoes and chiles
2 ears of corn, husks and silk removed, sliced into rounds
5 potatoes, quartered
Saute the onion and mushrooms until softened. Add the vegetable stock, bay leaves, corn, potatoes and diced tomatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and cover. Simmer for about 30 minutes, until potatoes are softened. Stir in chopped cilantro and squeeze the juice from the three limes into the soup. Serve over a bowl of corn chips and topped with avocados. Enjoy!
