Savings recipe: Corn and borlotti soup with tortilla chips

Corn and pinto soup with tortillas

An inexpensive and healthy recipe not to be missed: corn and borlotti soup with tortilla chips.

A good corn and borlotti soup with tortilla chips is just what you need for a hearty and natural lunch , also suitable for vegetarians. The beans we have chosen are borlotti, but if you prefer, red beans, cannellini beans or other types will also be fine. We advise you to use dried legumes, rather than packaged ones, which often contain an excessive amount of salt.

The soup, whose ingredients are all low-cost, can be completed with tortilla chips or with croutons, including kamut, to give that crunchy touch that never hurts, in a legume soup.
