Improv Black Bean Soup with Chili & LimeSubmitted by: STARSCATTER
IntroductionSpicy and a little sweet; slightly citrusy. My friends thought there might be a chocolatey-Mexican-mole' sauce involved. There isn't! Spicy and a little sweet; slightly citrusy. My friends thought there might be a chocolatey-Mexican-mole' sauce involved. There isn't!
4 cups black beans (dry, soaked & rinsed, although canned would probably work just as well)
1 can tomato soup
1 can chicken (or veg.) broth
2 c. water
1 c. salsa
1 c. each of chopped carrots, celery & onion (or whatever veggies you like, ie peppers)
4 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp coarse ground black pepper
1 tbsp chili powder
1/4 c lime juice OR
try 1 tbsp Cholula's Chili & Lime Seasoning, and 2-3 packets of True Lime instead.
Great with brown rice for that perfect protein. Use less garlic & chili for less spicy, although this recipe does not burn the palate.
I called it "Improv" because I made it up after reading lots of black bean soup recipes. Do whatever you like, the black beans will like you back!
