1 red pepper, chopped
1 celery stalk, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 carrots, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 cup frozen corn
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1/8 cup vinegar
3 cups salsa
1 can diced tomatoes
pinch of sugar

1. In large stock pot put oil, garlic, red pepper, onion, carrot, and celery. Saute for 5 min.
2. Add broth, corn, pepper, vinegar, salsa, and tomatoes. Med-high heat for 5 min. Bring to boil, reduce and simmer for 15 minutes.
3. Add beans. Simmer 5-10 minutes.
4. Season to taste (I add a pinch of sugar).
