Black Bean soup because beans DO NOT BELONG in dessert…. See previous posts. LOL
3 cans rinsed Black beans
3 cloves garlic
1 bell pepper
2 chopped celery stalks
1-2 cups of chicken stock depending on how thick you like your soup
1tsp coriander or to taste
1tsp cumin or to taste
1 can green chiles
2 bay leaves
couple dashes of Hot Sauce
1/2 squeezed lime
Avocados, chips, sour cream, lime wedges, cheese, rice
Saute onion, pepper and garlic in olive oil. Mash or puree one can of beans and 4 tomatoes. Tomatoes can be chopped or pureed depending on your preference. Once sauteed, add 2 cans of beans, the pureed mix, salt pepper, chicken stock, seasonings, chiles, bay leaves and Hot Sauce to the onion-pepper mix. Simmer 15-20 minutes. Add lime juice and serve! Don’t forget to remove the Bay leaves. Enjoy!
PS- If you decide to puree, your soup will be much thinner, you can always add more beans if needed.
