Spicy Black Bean Soup

Since the holidays are quicky approaching, I decided to make some cheap meals for the next couple of weeks, especially since Jeremy and I are going to Gatlinburg the first week of December. I found this recipe on the novice chef blog. It really only costed me about 4.00 to make both the soup and sandwich because I had most of the stuff on hand already. I served this with a grilled cheese sandwich that was made with bacon, sliced tomato, provolone cheese, and shredded cheddar.



2 cans black beans- 1 drained and rinsed, 1 w/ liquid

1 onion, chopped

1 jalapeno, seeded and minched

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 tsp oregano

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp chili powder

salt and pepper

2 1/2 cups chicken broth

1 tbsp evoo

3 scallions, chopped


Heat evoo in large stockpot. Add in onion, garlic, and jalapeno. Season with cumin,oregano,chili powder, salt and pepper.Saute for about 5 mins or until tender. Add in both cans of beans and chicken broth. Simmer 1o mins.  Transfer 1 cup of soup to blender and puree until smooth. Return puree to soup. Stir to combine. Simmer another 5 mins. Garnish with chopped scallions.

    Hope you enjoyed it! We actually had this for dinner last night! It is such an easy, comfort food type soup! 🙂

    We went the souped-up grilled cheese route last night … as a bit of a soup (& crock pot) novice, do you think this recipe would translate to a crock pot without much trouble if I set it on low after sauteeing the necessary ingredients?

    Im sure you could probably do it in the crockpot with no problems. I would just leave it maybe 3-4 hours though.
