Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1 spray(s) cooking spray
    1 medium onion(s), finely chopped
    4 medium garlic clove(s), minced
    45 oz canned black beans, undrained, divided (three 15 oz cans)
    1/2 tsp red pepper flakes, or to taste
    1 tsp ground cumin
    14 1/2 oz fat-free chicken broth, or vegetable broth
    10 oz canned tomatoes with green chilies, such as Rotel Tomatoes
    11 oz canned yellow corn, drained
    Cilantro

Directions

Coat bottom of a large stockpot with cooking spray. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until onions are soft but not brown, about 5 minutes.


Place one can of beans in blender; add sautéed onion mixture, red pepper flakes and cumin. Cover and blend on high until smooth, about 30 seconds. Pour mixture back into stockpot.


Place second can of beans and broth in blender and puree until smooth; add to stockpot.


Stir third can of beans (do not puree first), tomatoes and green chilies, and corn into stockpot. Bring to a boil, lower heat to medium and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes. Yields about 1 1/2 cups of soup per serving.

I added cilantro to the recipee on the 2nd puree. As much as desired, I love cilantro so I am generous.

  • Really quite good! I think I pureed too many black beans and it turned out to be more of black bean dip haha. Added a little more vegetable broth and it fixed the problem! Very delicious and oh so simple and nutritious! - 5/6/11

  • Mine turned out a bit too liquidy and lacked richness. I do want to try tweaking it a bit next time. - 2/19/11

  • I made it Sunday from my WW cookbook. The nutritional info differed a tad: 14 oz can tomatoes w/diced green chilis, no cilantro & red (purple) onion--but I agree--super easy & delicious. We topped w/2TBS ea--reduced fat sour cream & red onion. Made 8 servings & didn't mind eating multiple times! - 2/3/11

  • This was the healthiest most filling soup I've ever made so 5 stars for that. It needs something and I'm not sure what so I'll try suggestions. I will definitely make it again and again. - 2/1/11

  • Delicious and easy to make. Just made this last night and loved it. I am not a big bean taster but this was awesome. Blending some of the black beans with the onion and garlic after they are sauteed and then adding to the pot makes for richer tasted. Love the lime addition. Will try that next t - 1/11/11

  • This is one I found through WW that I've been using a lot. It is so good. We have a hand blander which makes pureeing even easier. - 1/7/10
