South of the Border Tomato Bean Soup

Welcome to another Tuesday edition of "Janet Doesn't Follow the Recipe!"  Also known as Tuesdays at the Table.

Today I'm sharing a recipe I got from a co-worker last week.  I tried to find the original recipe online, but I can't find it.  I think she got it from a label or something.  Anyway, it uses all Red Gold brand stuff, which I could find NONE of at Wal-mart.  So, as usual, I kind of modified it and did my own thing.  This is what I came up with:

South of the Border Tomato Bean Soup

1 can hot chili beans
2 cups of vegetable juice (like V-8)
1 can diced tomatoes and green chilies (like Ro-tel)
1 small package (16 oz) frozen corn
1/3 cup sliced green onions

In large saucepan, combine all ingredients. Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes.

See?  Souper easy!  (Okay, that was bad.)

We topped ours with cheese and ate with tortilla chips.  The original recipe says to top with sour cream.

Here is the nutrition info according to the original recipe.  My version may differ a tad, since I used other brands:
Calories:  130, Fat 0 g, Cholesterol 0 g, Sodium 210 mg, Carbohydrate 26 g, Protein 6 g, Vitamin A 15%, Vitamin C 35%, Calcium 2%, Iron 8%.
