  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 pound flank steak
  • 1 Tbs olive oil


  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 quart beef broth
  • 1/4 cup sliced pickled jalapenos
  • 1 cup crushed tomatoes juices included

The rest

  • 1 cup black beans washed and drained
  • 1 cup whole kernel corn drained
  • Cilantro leaves for garnish
  • Tortilla strips


  • In a small bowl, combine cumin, coriander, garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme, salt, and pepper.
  • Rub all over the flank steak, and drizzle with olive oil, let rest 10 minutes
  • Meanwhile, in a large soup pot, heat 1 tbs olive oil over medium heat, and add onion, then saute until tender, approximately 4 minutes.
  • I love to make this soup in my Staub Dutch Oven, it makes me feel extra cozy and warm.
  • Stir in the garlic, and saute an additional minute.
  • Pour broth, jalapenos, and tomatoes into the pot.
  • Bring to a boil, and then reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • While simmering soup, either grill the steak 5 minutes per side, or bake at 425 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
  • Place steak on cutting board, rest for 10 minutes, then cut beef against the grain, and add to the soup.
  • Add in black beans and corn.
  • Top with cilantro, tortilla strips, and enjoy!
