Zesty Pinto Bean Soup

I'm living solo this week so I've asked some of friends to e-mail me some easy recipes so I can have something other than pizza every night:-)

Here's one for pinto bean soup that I'm going to try tonight.

1 (4 oz) can chopped green chiles
1/4 C. plus 2 Tb. water
1 1/2 ts ground cumin
1/4 ts ground red pepper
1/4 C. plus 2 Tb thinly sliced green onions
1/2 C. Finely chopped green bell peppers
2 (15 1/2 oz) cans pinto beans, undrained
1 (14 1/2 oz) can no-salt added whole tomatoes, undrained and chopped
Vegetable Cooking Spray

- Coat a saucepan with cooking spray; place over medium-high heat until hot.
- Add bell pepper; saute 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
- Add 1 can pinto beans and mash.
- Add remaining beans, tomatoes, and next 4 ingredients...stir well.
- Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Scoop soup into bowls and top with onions.

Seems quick and simple...just what I'll be in the mood for after a 12+ hour work day.
