|The beans are in the crock pot. The apples are evidence of me not editing.|
This time I complicated it by using black beans I made from dried beans rather than canned so that I could have a ton of black beans, but it was still easy. You can't mess this up. New cooks, rejoice! I am sure this would make a great crock pot recipe, though it's so easy and quick I don't know that I've ever tried.
Serve this with tortilla chips, quesadillas, or cornbread. This time we baked cornbread and also diced some avocado to add to the soup.
Spicy Black Bean Soup
2 cans or 3 cups prepared black beans
2 cans diced tomatoes with green chilis (such as Ro-Tel)
1 can (2 cups) beef broth
Open all cans and add all ingredients into a medium pot. Heat over medium heat until warmed through. Serve with whatever floats your boat...or in this case, tortilla chip.
- I am sure you could make this vegan by subbing in vegetable broth, and maybe some liquid aminos to add to a more meaty flavor. We're not vegan so I use the beef broth.
- I did not drain the beans or the tomatoes. If you decide to, you may want to add a little extra broth.
