Easy Black Bean Soup

Black Bean Soup Madeinaday.com

I love soup on cold winter days, don’t you? My husband has a thing for black beans and he absolutely loves Black Bean Soup! I have tried many different recipes, but I just couldn’t get the right consistency to make him smile. Until I found a post last week that had a neat trick in the directions to put the beans in a blender to make it smooth. In the past I was smashing the beans with a potato smasher and the soup consistency was just too thin and just wrong! I combined this new found trick with my favorite recipe and the results were prefect!! It is a super easy quick soup to make for those busy week nights.

Cook Time

  1. 5 cans of black beans
  2. 1 ½-2 14.5 oz cans chicken broth
  3. 1 can corn, drained
  4. 16 oz jar salsa, {I use Mrs. Renfro's Black Bean Salsa}
  5. ½ teaspoon cumin
  6. ½ teaspoon chili powder
  7. Toppings: cheddar cheese, sour cream, green onions
  1. Blend 3 cans of black beans with 1 1/2 cans of chicken broth in a blender.
  2. You may need to do 2 batches if it does not fit in your blender.
  3. Add the bean mixture to a large pot.
  4. Add the jar of salsa, cumin and chili powder.
  5. Add the can of corn and last 2 cans of black beans, all drained first.
  6. Heat on medium to a boil then set on low.
  7. Stir occasionally so soup does not stick to the bottom of your pan. Simmer for 30-45 minutes.
  8. Top with cheese, sour cream and green onions. Diced avocado would be great on this too.
  1. I hope you like it! It was hit with my husband and even the kids loved it!

  5. Kim,

    Thanks for sharing! This looks SO good & I plan on making some later on this week. Just one question; although it may be stupid, why drain the last 2 cans of beans? Is that to reduce the amount of liquid being added to the soup? I just was curious, because a lot of recipes that I have seen using black beans recommend that they be drained and rinsed. Thanks again & would appreciate you thoughts when you get a chance.
