Low Cost Spicy Black Bean and Veggie Soup

Submitted by: BARBLAM1

Introduction

This is a very-very filling, yet low calorie, zero fat soup. I like it spicy and use a good amount of Cayenne Pepper, but seasoning of course can be adjusted to each persons pallet. I have on occasion added leftover chicken to the pot and a large green salad to make an entire very low cost , healthy meal.

Very easy to double ingredients to serve 4.
