2 large onions, chopped
8-10 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 red bell pepper, ribbed and chopped
3 jalapeno peppers, ribbed and chopped
6 cups water or vegetable broth
3 large potatoes, diced
2 large sweet potatoes, diced
3 corn tortilla shells, cut into strips
2 cups corn (not canned)
salt, pepper, chili powder (or a fresh chili) to taste
Heat olive oil in large soup pot (medium flame), then add onion and garlic. Saute until just tender (5 minutes). Add peppers and saute for about ten minutes.
Add the water, potato, sweet potato, tortilla shells, and any seasonings you like (salt, pepper, chili powder) and bring to a boil. Reduce flame and simmer uncovered for about 20 minutes.
Add the corn and simmer for another 5 minutes or so. If the soup is too thick, add more broth or even add some soy milk.
Serve with a wedge of lime.
