1.  Mix the spices together in a small bowl.

2.  In a large stockpot, heat 2 tablespoons of oil and add a diced white onion.

3.  Give that 2-3 minutes to soften before adding 2 cloves of minced garlic and 2 sliced bell peppers. Add about 1/2 of the spice mix directly onto these ingredients to give them some flavor, then let them continue to soften over medium heat for 5 minutes.

4.  Stir in a tablespoon of tomato paste and the can of diced tomatoes.Then, add all the liquid: 4 cups vegetable broth, 2 cups of water, and 2 cups of non-dairy milk (I used soy here) as well as the 2 cans of beans and 2 cups of corn. Add the rest of the seasoning. Leave the heat at medium-low and give this 30 minutes to simmer (uncovered).

5.  After 30 minutes, sprinkle in 1/3 cup cornmeal directly into the soup. This will add a ton of “weight” to the soup, making it feel much creamier with a hint of tortilla. Give this another 30 minutes (uncovered) to simmer.

6.  Slice 4 corn tortillas into 1/2 inch wide strips and throw them right into the soup to soften for a moment. Add the cilantro and give it all a good stir.

7.  To serve, transfer the soup to bowls and top with some avocado slices. You can also add a little Toffuti sour cream.

8.  Enjoy!!
