Cook this heart-warming meal during the cold weather season

Pumpkin Black Bean Tortilla Soup:
A hearty soup plus nutritious! Pumpkin adds extra flavor, fiber and Vitamin A. Black beans are very high in fiber, folate, protein and iron and don’t forget the tomatoes, which are loaded with Vitamin A and C. Enjoy making this soup by adding more or less of the ingredients. I do encourage you not to leave out the cumin. The cumin gives a subtle smoky flavor. 

12 (6 inch) corn tortillas 
1/4 cup olive oil
1 medium white or yellow onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoons ground cumin
