Instructions
  1. Add 1 Tbsp of olive oil to a large dutch oven and heat over medium heat, just until the oil begins to shimmer. Stir in the chopped onions, carrot, and celery; sprinkle with a little sea salt or kosher salt. Cook about 10 to 15 minutes, or until the vegetables are soft, stirring frequently.
  2. Stir in the minced garlic, chili powder, cumin, and red pepper flakes; cook about 30 seconds, just until fragrant. Add the drained beans, stewed tomatoes, and vegetable stock; bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Cook at a gentle simmer, about 30 minutes, or until the beans are very tender.
  3. Add about 4 cups of the soup to a blender jar; puree until smooth. Use a dish towel to hold the cover of the jar in place, allowing a little gap for steam to escape. Be careful, the soup and steam are very hot. Return the pureed soup back to the pot and stir in the corn and lime juice. Simmer 10 to 15 minutes or until the corn is heated through. Add salt and pepper, to taste. Serve; garnish with some chopped avocado and cilantro, if desired.
Recipe Notes

Variations:

Substitute 1 can of Fiesta or Mexican corn for the whole kernel corn.

Add 1/4 to 1/2 green or red pepper, chopped.
