I do have to admit that there is one problem with having a blog for over a year (which in lapband dog years is like...7 years). I have a tendency to forget what I have posted. I am pretty sure I posted this recipe before, but I will do it again...because I am a rebel like that!
Here is my hand blender that I received from my mama at Christmas time. I use this sucker ALL.THE.TIME! I use it with my pumpkin soup, tomato soup, this soup, etc. They are super handy for creaming things up!
1 medium onion, diced (watch your thumbs)
1 clove garlic, diced
1 tbls olive oil
3 can black beans, drained and rinsed
3-4 cups chicken broth
1 can Rotel
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin *
Saute onions and garlic in olive oil over medium/high heat for 4-6 minutes until tender. Add beans, broth, rotel, chili powder. Cover and bring to boil. Remove lid and reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Squirt in some lime juice. Puree with hand blender (or regular blender). Serve with cheese, sour cream, blue chips, etc!
* I did not have cumin so I used half a package of Hidden Valley Ranch dry seasoning (I use it for my taco soup so I figured why not?!)
End product (not a picture of MY soup)
