Vegan Mexican Tortilla Soup

March break, the time when everyone is vacationing somewhere hot and sunny actually means more work for me. Running kids camps all day, creating crafts, field trips and group games means I’m one tired lady! Well who’s to say we cannot have our own little vacation right here for dinner! That’s why I decided to have a Mexican night! Well Mexican soup that is.

This Vegan Mexican Tortilla Soup is actually very simple to make, which consists of 3 main ingredients; tomatoes, red peppers and black beans. It’s the toppings that make this soup a Fiesta! Avocado, tortilla chips and radishes.
