Black Bean Soup

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

Today’s soup is a black bean soup that I found in an issue of Cooking with Paula Deen.  This version gets a nice start.  It all begins with some bacon, then you cook the onion and garlic in the bacon grease. 

Then you add in the beans, broth, cumin, and chili powder.  You will bring it to a boil and reduce to a simmer for 30 minutes.

Then you are going to spoon ½ of the mixture into a blender and process until smooth. However, be careful when using a blender with really hot food. Keep the lid slightly cracked to release steam or you can end up with a soup explosion. This simple soup comes together in about 45 minutes. 

Serve this black bean soup alongside a quesadilla and you have a delicious meal.  It’s what I call the Mexican version of grilled cheese and tomato soup.

Today I am also starting a fun 8 weeks of Christmas Goodies with some other bloggers.
