    Default Best Black Bean Soup Ever!

    This is a staple in my house during cold weather...have a pot on the stove right now! Excellent and filling!


    Smoky Black Bean Soup


    Makes 6 servings (4 points per serving)

    3 (15-1/2 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
    1/4 pound Canadian Bacon, trimmed of all visible fat and chopped
    1 onion, chopped
    1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
    1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
    3 garlic cloves, minced
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/2 teaspoon ground chipotle chili pepper***
    4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth

    Spray a large saucepan with canola oil nonstick spray and set over med-high heat. Add the bacon and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, 6-7 minutes. Add peppers, onions garlic and cook till softened. Add the cumin and chili pepper, cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the beans and broth; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until slightly thickened, about 30 minutes.

    Remove the saucepan from the heat; let cool about 10 minutes. Pour 4 cups of the soup into a blender or food processor and puree. Return the pureed soup to the saucepan. Cook stirring occasionally, over med-high heat until heated through, about 2 minutes.

    Per serving (1-1/3 cups): 209 cal, 3g fat, 1195 sodium, 20g carb, 11g fiber, 16g protein

    ***I didn't have any chipotle chili pepper, so I used chili powder and red pepper flakes to taste!

    Thanks Laurie! I've been looking for a good black bean soup recipe. I've got the "uncanned" black beans in the package and had been wondering what to do with them. Maybe I'll try this this weekend. Maybe float a little FF Sourcream on top?

    Judy, I love this soup. I usually make it every weekend during the cold weather! Just warms me right up! Actually, today, I measured out 30g of lf sour cream to take for the soup! I don't think I ever put any in, but since I've got it, I thought I'd try!

    Unfortunately, I can't for the life of me figure out where I found this recipe. I'm sure it was on the web somewhere, but when I try to Google the name, nothing matching comes up. So, I can't give credit where credit's due...but a great soup.

    Oh, and I use my "immersion" blender and don't bother with taking some out and blending it...why dirty up another appliance! Works great! ENJOY

    Oh, and I did buy the chipolte chili pepper, changes the whole taste of the soup, gives it a more SMOKEY flavor. Abso-looo-tly delish!
