Vita-Mix Fridays: Tortilla Soup

Today, one my all-time favorite recipes, and one of the ones that "sold" me on the Vita-Mix! Vita-Mix Tortilla Soup from the Vita-Mix website (and cookbook!). But, as usual, I tweaked things a bit. Here is what I do:

Tortilla Soup
Inspired from Vita-Mix:

Yield: 5 cups
Speed: Variable to High to Variable
Time: 5 to 6 minutes

3 cups water
2 bouillon cubes
1 Roma tomato
1 carrot
1 rib celery
1 thin slice of onion
1 garlic clove, peeled
1 thin slice of yellow squash
1 thin slice of red bell pepper
1 thin slice of cabbage
1 mushroom
1 packet of Sazon Goya Low Sodium Seasoning, Natural & Complete
dash adobo powder without pepper
dash chili powder
dash cumin
handful of black beans (reserved)
handful of corn kernels (reserved)

Place all ingredients to cumin (leaving out black beans and corn) in Vita-Mix container in order listed. Secure 2-part lid. Select VARIABLE, speed #1. Turn on machine and quickly increase speed to #10; then to HIGH. Run for 5 to 6 minutes until steam escapes through lid opening.

Reduce speed to VARIABLE, speed #2. Remove lid plug. Add in the black beans and corn kernels just a few seconds - long enough to chop them up a bit.

Serve immediately.

Can't you just see that steam rising from it? All from a blender! Pretty cool (er, uh, hot), huh?
