Black Bean Soup

Black Bean Soup

Black Bean Soup

Ingredients, Method & Procedure.

½ Tbsp vegetable oil

½ onion, chopped fine

½ jalapeno, stemmed, seeded, and minced

3 cloves garlic, pressed

1 tsp chili powder

dash cayenne pepper

2 (15.5 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed

2 cups low-sodium chicken broth (or vegetable broth)

¾-1 cup water

¼ tsp salt

1 Tbsp fresh lime juice, or to taste

¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

diced avocado (optional)

sour cream (optional)

1. Heat the oil over medium heat until shimmering. Add the onion and jalapeno and cook until softened, about 5 min. Add the garlic, chili powder and cayenne and cook for another minute.

2. Stir in the beans, broth, smaller amount of water, and salt. Bring to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes. Process half the soup in a blender until smooth and pour back into the pot. (Or, you could just mash it up a little.)

3. Off the heat, add the lime juice and salt and pepper to taste. Garnish each bowl with cilantro (and maybe some sour cream and/or avocado) just before serving. If making this soup ahead of time, don’t add the lime juice or other garnishes until you are ready to serve it. This soup freezes well too.
