IntroductionI got this recipe from Smitten Kitchen, and oh is it ever good, and ever easy! With only a little bit of prep work, you let the slow cooker do the rest for you!

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large-size red onion, chopped
1 medium-size red or yellow bell pepper, chopped
1 medium-size green bell pepper, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
4 teaspoons ground cumin
1 16-ounce package dried black beans
1 tablespoon chopped chipotle chiles from a can (these chiles give quite the kick, so leave them out if you want a milder soup)
7 cups hot water (your hottest tap water is fine)
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons coarse kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
When finished cooking, put two cups of the soup into a blender or food processor and puree until smooth, stir back into the rest of the soup. Add in the lime, salt and pepper.
I then like to add a little dollop of low-fat sour cream and some fresh cilantro (these are not included in the nutritional information).
Enjoy! and visit www.smittenkitchen.com for the full blog post.
