5 Bean Soup

We made this soup for dinner tonight and it was absolutely delicious, not to mention easy! It's hearty, can be dressed up with lots of toppings and it was definitely a crowd pleaser at dinner.

2 TB olive oil
2 medium onions, chopped fine
1 garlic clove, pressed into onion
1 can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 can lima beans, drained and rinsed
1 can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 can white northern beans, drained and rinsed
28oz can petite diced tomatoes
1 c chunky salsa
1-2 cups chicken broth
1 tsp each basil and oregano
1 c grated cheddar cheese (or more if you like!)

Sauté onion and garlic in olive oil until tender. Add other ingredients and chicken broth for desired consistency. Simmer for at least 30 minutes. Just before serving stir in cheese until melted. Serve with tortilla chips, sour cream or plain greek yogurt, avocado, and more grated cheese, if desired.
