Black Bean Soup

Words cannot describe how good this soup is.  Heaven in a bowl, and then on top of my salads as leftovers.

All you need is:

2T Olive Oil
1 onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
6 minced garlic cloves
1tsp ground cumin
1 tsp minced canned chipotle chili in adobo sauce
4 cans of black beans
4 C veggie broth
1/2C chopped cilantro
1 avocado diced

And then you just..

Cook the onion, bell pepper and 1/2 tsp of salt until soft (6-8 mins); then add garlic cumin and chipotle and cook until you can smell it (30 seconds-ish)

Then puree half the beans in 1 cup of broth until smooth; stir with remaining beans, and then pour the beans into the pot with the onion mix, and remaining 3 cups of broth.  Bring to a boil, and then allow the soup to simmer until it’s thickened up.

Stir in the cilantro and use salt and pepper to taste; serve it up with diced avocado and enjoy!

I also tossed in a little pico de gallo with mine, super easy (tomatoes, diced onion, jalepeno, cilantro and lime juice).  This soup is insane, I’m sure you will enjoy it, I certainly did to say the least!
