Black Bean Soup
Jessica writes: Here's a warm soup recipe for a crisp fall day! This soup is really easy to make and my girls actually eat it, so it's a winner at our house! Our girls like to mix in sour cream.
2 cans black beans, undrained
1 cup chicken broth
1 small onion, chopped
1 tsp minced garlic
1 jar (16 oz) thick and chunky salsa
2 tsp. lime juice
1 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper (opt)
1/3 cup plain yogurt or sour cream (opt. stir-in)
Place 1 can beans with liquid and broth in blender, cover. Blend until smooth.
In large pot, sauté onion and garlic for 4-5 min.
Add blended bean mixture, remaining beans and liquid, salsa, lime juice, cumin and crushed red pepper. Bring to boil.
Reduce heat to low and cover.
Cook stirring occasionally, for 25-30 min.
Serve topped with yogurt or sour cream if desired.
