  • 1/2teaspoon cumin
  • 1small yellow onionchopped
  • 3cups fresh or frozen and thawed corn kernels
  • 2 1/2cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1small red bell peppercored, seeded, and diced
  • 1small avocadodiced
  • 1/4cup chopped fresh cilantro
  1. Preheat oven to 375˚. Stack tortillas and cut into 1/4-inch strips. In a medium bowl, toss together with 1 tablespoon olive oil and cumin. Spread in a single layer on a large baking sheet and sprinkle with salt. Bake, stirring frequently, until golden brown, 10–15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool slightly.
  2. While tortillas are cooking, in a medium pot, heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and cook onion over medium-high for 3 minutes. Add corn and 2 cups broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and cook for 2–3 minutes, until corn is just done. Using a food processor or immersion blender, purée about half of the soup, in batches, until smooth. Add up to 1/2 cup of remaining broth to achieve desired consistency. Stir in bell pepper and cook over medium-high heat for 2–3 minutes, until just crisp-tender.
  3. To serve, divide avocado, cilantro, and tortilla strips between four serving bowls, layering on bottom. Ladle soup over ingredients; serve hot.
