With winter right around the corner, my mind has already turned to soups. I love the warm, flavorful soup. No brothy vegetable soups for me. I need something hearty and creamy that won’t leave me hungry in an hour. After all, I’m a mom. I don’t have time for more than three meals a day. This soup is amazingly simple. Really. I boiled my black beans because it is much cheaper that way, but if you bought a can (or two if you want to freeze some) it would take only fifteen minutes from start to finish. Even with canned black beans (I know, I’m pinching pennies with the self-cook beans!), it is a cheap meal and one that the kids can enjoy too. Pair with Everyday Bread and you’ve got yourself a meal, or two.
- 1 15 oz can of black beans, or 1 1/4 cup of cooked black beans
- 1 cup salsa
- 1 1/2 cup chicken broth
- 1 tsp cumin
- sour cream
- green onions (optional)
- Put black beans, salsa, and cumin in a food processor. Blend for 1 to 2 minutes.
- Heat black bean mixture and chicken broth in a medium pan until boiling.
- Serve with sour cream and green onion.
Couldn’t be easier, right? Enjoy.
