I found a recipe for Creamy Black Bean Tomato Soup the other day and I figured I would give it a try. I already make Creamy Black Bean Soup, and Tomato Soup and love both of them...so I figured I would enjoy this also.
*if you would like either recipe for the other soups, just use the handy little search box powered by ligit on the sidebar*
So here is the recipe:
3 cans of diced tomatoes, undrained
2 cans of black beans, drained and rinsed
1 medium onion, diced
1 tbls minced garlic (to taste)
5 cups chicken broth
1.5 tbls chili powder
1 tbls cumin
hot sauce (to taste)
salt and pepper
Top with your favs: cheese, sour cream, etc.
You saute the onion and garlic for about 4 minutes in some EVOO. Add the rest of the ingredients and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Then use or immersion blender to cream the soup (or transfer to regular blender).
I will say that it need something. Maybe more chili powder? Maybe Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning? I didn't add any salt...so maybe salt? Let me know what you think and if you zazz it up.
