I've been wanting to make this soup for a long time. It really is a cold weather soup and well, it's cold out. Here in the Chicago land area anyway. It warms your entire body when you eat it.
After I made the video, my daughter said put some lime in it. So I did and it was even better. Then I thought, I bet a quesadilla would go great with this. And I was right. So be sure to make a quesadilla to go with your soup.
Ok, let's get to the recipe. Here is what you will need.
1 onion diced
2 stalks of celery diced
1 carrot diced. if they are small, use two
2-3 cloves of garlic minced
2 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp cumin
1/2 tsp black pepper
4 - 15 oz cans of black beans rinsed and drained
1 can of Rotel tomatoes and green chili's
32 oz of vegetable broth
Put half of the beans and the can of tomatoes in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Set aside.
In a large soup pot, saute the onion, celery and carrot until tender. Add the garlic and spices and stir to combine. Pour in the veg broth, beans and bring to a small boil. Add the bean and tomato from the blender and stir again. Give it a taste and season to your liking. Serve and enjoy.
