Best Black Bean Soup

Best Black Bean Soup

I went through this last Spring.

It would be warmer weather the day I was planning our meals. So ready for lighter fare, I’d plan a summer salad. On the day I served it, the wind would howl and the flurries fly! Well, I’m right back at it again. As I planned my meals last week, the furnace was roaring.

Best Black Bean Soup

Today it was downright balmy, sunny and summery, in the mid 80’s, and I had a big pot of  Best Black Bean Soup simmering away!

This soup is both nutritious and delicious. It goes together so quickly, and is a nice change from traditional chili. We really enjoy black beans and all the goodies packed in this soup. It’s a favorite from my darling Mom, so it’s comforting too, even when it’s 85 degrees out!

Garnish with shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream and serve with a fresh tossed salad and a few tortilla chips. As always, serve with love and enjoy!

    I am SO VERY READY for soup season!! I love to have it on Friday nights when the husband comes home from the road. To me, it’s the perfect way to say “Welcome Home”.

    I have a feeling that I’ll like your soups as much as I like your salads so…. keep ’em coming if you have more.

    That’s a great recipe. I just saved it to my recipes. Do you rinse the black beans or dump the can with the sauce into the chili?

    That looks amazing! For some reason black beans aren’t in all the supermarkets around here and the one that does stock them only stocks an organic brand (with the organic price to match), btu I reckon it might be worth it to make this.
