Ingredients Edit

Optional garnishes Edit

Directions Edit

  1. Drain the tomatoes, reserving the juice.
  2. In a heavy nonreactive soup pot or saucepan, saute the onions and chile or Cayenne in the oil for about 5 minutes, until the onions begin to soften.
  3. Add the cumin and lima beans and saute, stirring, for a couple of minutes.
  4. Add the juice from the tomatoes, cover, and simmer for 5 minutes.
  5. Chop the whole tomatoes right in the can.
  6. Stir the chopped tomatoes and corn into the pan.
  7. Cover and simmer until the vegetables are tender (recipe said this should only take about 10 minutes, but it took a lot longer.
  8. I don't know if it was because I was using fresh instead of frozen lima beans but it took more like 30 or 40 minutes).
  9. Stir in cilantro and add salt and black pepper to taste.
  10. Serve plain or topped with suggested garnishes.
