Ingredients for 3-Ingredient Vegan Enchilada Soup

The soup is made from three humble ingredients:

  1. crushed tomatoes,
  2. canned black beans
  3. red enchilada sauce

Red enchilada sauce is the powerhouse ingredient in the recipe. It is made from ground red chiles, garlic, onion, spices, and a bit of vinegar. It also has a lot of salt, so  to keep the sodium under control, select canned beans and tomatoes that are low-sodium or no-salt added.
