Anise's Fast Fiesta Soup, from Sarah

My friend gave me the base recipe, so we all call it "Anise Soup" - but it's after the friend, not the herb. She calls it Fast Fiesta Soup.

2 cans diced tomatoes with jalepenos, drained

1 can black beans, drained and rinsed

1 can corn, drained

One block of firm tofu

Sliced olives

a few dashes of cayenne pepper

Put everything in a big pot and cook it on medium-lo for about half an hour. Help the tofu along a bit by poking at it with your spoon when your stir - it ends up breaking apart into small pieces, not entirely melting in like soft would.

Serve in bowls topped with shredded cheese and sour cream. Mmm, the sour cream is a must. Not because it doesn't taste good without it, but because it tastes heavenly WITH.
