Owner Dave Schultz,
Saucer’s Café

Chipotle and chorizo add good old-fashioned heat and Southwest flavour to this chunky soup.

4 large, ripe tomatoes
4 whole chorizo sausages
1/2 yellow onion, diced
1/2 green pepper, diced
1 540 ml can black beans
1 cup corn kernels
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp chipotle
1/2 L chicken stock
1/8 cup packed and roughly chopped cilantro


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. On a baking sheet, roast tomatoes for 20-30 mins until tomatoes are soft and starting to release juices.
  3. Remove chorizo from casing.
  4. In a medium-sized pan, sauté onions, peppers and chorizo over medium-high heat until meat is cooked and onions are transparent, about 5 mins.
  5. In a large stockpot, place all ingredients except for chicken stock and cilantro.
  6. Bring to a slow boil over medium heat, then reduce to low heat and simmer for 10-15 mins.
  7. Add chicken stock and simmer for another 10 mins.
