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! So I thought I would try my hand at making it for him.

I have tried many different recipes for this soup, but I just couldn’t get the right consistency to make him smile. Until I found one 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 masher and the soup consistency was just too thin and just wrong!

I combined my new found trick with my simple black bean with salsa soup recipe and the results were perfect!! It is a super easy quick soup to make for those busy weeknights.

Yield: 6 people
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour 5 minutes

Black Bean soup made easy by blending the beans!

Ingredients

  • 5 cans of black beans
  • 1 1/2-2 14.5 oz cans chicken broth
  • 1 can of corn, drained
  • 16 oz jar of salsa
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • Toppings: cheddar cheese, sour cream, green onions

Instructions

  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, drained.
  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.

Notes

I hope you like it! It was hit with my husband and even the kids loved it!

    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.

      I drained them so the consistency would not be too thin. It really is your preference though. Hope this helps! Thanks for stopping by!
