Black Bean & Tomato Soup

Black Bean & Tomato Soup

I needed a quick meal the other day and my wife had mentioned seeing a recipe for a black bean soup.  She didn’t have the web address handy, so I improvised this recipe.  It turned out pretty tasty!

Soup Ingredients:

  • 1 Large Can Black Beans
  • 1 Large Can Rotel Tomatoes or Petite Dice Tomatoes (I’d go with the Rotel Tomatoes with chilies but the kids don’t all like spicy.)
  • 1/3 Medium Onion
  • 1/2 Bell Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. Minced Garlic
  • Salt  & Pepper to taste
  • 2 Tsp. Chili Powder
  • 1 Cup Vegetable (or Chicken) Broth

Add Ins:

  • Cheese
  • Garlic Chili Sauce
  • Cooked Rice (2 cups uncooked works well with this much soup.)

Directions:

  1. If you are making rice start it now. (I love my rice cooker, saves so much time and effort.  Plus I never get burned rice 🙂 )
  2. Place all soup ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. (If you have a Vitamix, you can skip the next step by just turning it up to high and letting it heat up like any normal Vitamix soup.)BlackBeanSoupPrep
  3. Pour into soup pot and heat on med-low on stove. Stirring to keep from burning.
  4. Ladle into bowls and add any, all, or none of the suggested add-ins.  Enjoy!
