Janelle writes “I recently made this soup and was surprised how amazing it was! I actually ate 2 bowls! I ran some over to my mom because it is her favorite soup…the next day she called me and said “That was the best black bean soup I have ever had!” coming from her, that was a huge compliment (she orders black bean soup every where she goes, haha) I hope you enjoy this simple, delicious, and healthy recipe”~ Janelle
P.S (this is actually not very spicy despite the addition of chili powder, if you wish to have an extra kick please be my guest in adding more!)
2 cans seasoned black beans, chicken broth, olive oil, onion, garlic, chili powder, cumin, water (little boy optional lol!)
Peel and chop garlic
Saute onions and garlic in olive oil on med-high heat. When onions start to soften, add chili powder and cumin
Add broth and water
Turn heat up and let simmer for 15 mins
Turn down heat
Take an immersion blender and blend right into the pot of soup. This will liquify some of the beans making a thicker/creamy texture and will leave some beans in tact. If you do not have an immersion blender, please do not let this stop you from making this recipe! Simply take half of the soup and blend it in an actual blender or food processor and place back with remaining soup.
Scoop a cup of rice into your serving bowl. (I just used a simple minute rice here)
Pour soup over top and garnish with fresh cilantro
Best Ever Black Bean Soup
2 cans of seasoned black beans (drained, not rinsed)
1 can chicken broth
1 1/2 cups water
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 cup chopped onion
2 cloves of garlic minced
2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp cumin
White Rice (I used minute rice, follow instructions on box for 4 people)
In a large pot sauté onions and garlic in olive oil until soft. Add chili powder and cumin and stir. Add remaining ingredients and let simmer for 15 mins. Take an immersion blender right into the pot so that some beans are blended, and some remain intact. Place a cup of rice in a bowl and pour in soup, garnish with fresh cilantro!
Thank you, Janelle, for another amazing recipe!
Walk with the King!
