Back-Up Soup

I took the picture on my phone and emailed it to myself, and then redid the orientation in picture manager.  But it is still sideways.  I don't know why.

 This is called Back-Up Soup because I had planned to make my yummy baked potato soup.  My kids were looking forward to it.  Unbeknownst to me, my husband was taking out the trash in the morning before I got up, decided the potatoes in the pantry (that were only a few days old) must be ancient, and threw them away.  It was trash day, so the trash was gone in the morning.
I spent all day looking for those potatoes. 
Finally, around 5 pm, I decided that I had to find a back-up soup or we would not be having dinner.  I went through the pantry and the fridge, and came up with this.  It was actually pretty good!

1 small onion, chopped
1 large or 2 small cloves garlic, minced
1 can Rotel
1 can black beans
2/3 cup corn (I used frozen)
6 cups water with 4 tsp chicken bouillon, or 6 cups chicken broth
¾ cup uncooked rice
½ - 1 tsp chili powder
½ -1 tsp comino
½ -1 tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper, or to taste
Cook rice according to package directions.  While it’s cooking, sauté onions and garlic.  When soft, add Rotel, black beans, chicken broth, and  corn.  Season with chili powder, comino, salt, and pepper.  When rice is done, add it to soup and simmer until warm.
