Directions

Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in the pepper and onion stir fry mix, garlic, and cumin, and cook 5 minutes, until vegetables are tender, adding mushrooms about half way through. Mix in the tomatoes and chile peppers. Pour in the broth, and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, add the black beans and corn, reduce heat to low, and simmer 30 minutes.

Serve in bowls over equal amounts of tortilla chips. Top with avocado.
