Easy 10 Minute Black Bean Soup

Check out this simple recipe for black bean soup. It is the perfect side to a Mexican dinner and will warm you up on a cold winters day!

I like to use no salt versions of the stock and beans to make room for the salt in the taco seasoning. If you are going to use salted version of the stock and beans, opt for simple cumin for your seasoning.

Black Bean Soup
Makes 6-8 Servings

  • 1 qt. Prepared Vegetable or Chicken Stock, no salt version
  • 2 cans Canned Black Beans, no salt version
  • ¾ C Salsa
  • 3 tbsp. Taco Seasoning or 1 tbsp. Cumin
  • 1 Lime, Juiced
  • Place at the first 4 ingredients into a medium pot and bring to a simmer for 10 minutes. Use a hand blender to carefully blend the soup until smooth. If you do not have a hand blender, smash the beans with a potato masher or wooden spoon. Stir in the lime juice and add your favorite toppings.

    Optional Garnish: green onion, shredded radish, sliced jalapeños, sour cream, avocado, crushed tortilla chips, shredded cheese, smoked turkey, bacon and hot sauce.
