Black Bean Soup
Black Bean Soup Ingredients 3 (15 ounce) cans black beans ( 2 drained and rinsed) 1 medium onions ( chopped) 1 1/2 cups broth ( I use chicken, but you can use any kind) 1 1/2 cups water 1 1/2 teaspoons cumin 1 (10 ounce) cans rotel, tomatoes and chilies 1 (10 ounce) cans diced tomatoes 1/2 teaspoon dried cilantro ( or fresh-I recommend 1/4 cup) sour cream (optional) tortilla chips (optional) Directions Place onion, water, broth and cumin in a stock pot and bring to a boil. Reduce to medium heat. When onions are soft, place beans and rotel in the stock pot. Simmer for 20 minutes. Blend with a hand blender. Add diced tomatoes and cilantro. Simmer for 10-15 more minutes. Serve topped with a bit of sour cream and crushed tortilla chips.
