Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Heat Guide for Step 5 (dbl for 4 ppl): 1/2 tbsp mild, 1 tbsp medium, 1 1/2 tbsp spicy and 2 tbsp extra-spicy! Core, then cut green pepper into 1/2-inch pieces. Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Peel, then cut shallot into 1/4-inch pieces. Drain and rinse beans in a strainer. Drain, then rinse corn. Pat dry with paper towels.
Heat a large pot over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then shallots, garlic and Mexican Seasoning. Cook, stirring occasionally, until shallots soften, 2-3 min. Season with salt and pepper.
Add crushed tomatoes, broth concentrate, beans, half the corn and 2 cups water (dbl for 4 ppl). Bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium. Season with salt and pepper. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until soup reduces slightly, 10-12 min.
While soup simmers, heat a large non-stick pan over high heat. When hot, add green peppers and remaining corn to the dry pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, until dark golden-brown, 3-4 min. (TIP: Don't overcrowd the pan; cook veggies in two batches for 4 ppl!) Transfer to a medium bowl.
Peel, pit, then cut avocado into 1/2-inch pieces. Core, then finely chop jalapeño, removing seeds for less heat. (NOTE: We suggest using gloves when prepping jalapeño!) Zest, then juice half the lime. Cut remaining lime into wedges. To the same bowl with corn and peppers, add lime zest, lime juice, avocado and 1 tbsp jalapeños (dbl for 4 ppl). (NOTE: Reference heat guide.) Season with salt and pepper, then stir to combine.
Divide soup between bowls, then top with veggies. Sprinkle with cheese, then crumble tortilla chips over top. Squeeze over a lime wedge, if desired.
