"This is a modified version of a recipe that I found on another site. Either canned or cooked black beans can be used. This soup freezes well and I usually double or triple the recipe to have enough to freeze for later."

1 (15 ounce) can
black beans, undrained
low-sodium chicken broth
1 (10 ounce) can
diced tomatoes with green chile peppers (such as RO*TEL®)
red pepper flakes
chopped fresh cilantro
I used homemade chicken stock and I chose not to add the yogurt as it was optional. Because I do NOT care for Ro-Tel, I used a can of petite diced tomatoes and one 4 ounce can diced mild green chilies instead. This soup is fabulous. I am both a working mother and working with a tight budget, this was able to be made in less than 20 minutes, could be kept warm in a crockpot until my family got home and could be served with grilled cheese sandwiches (which can be easily made by Daddy) with easy clean up. PLUS, the family loved the soup. NO leftovers.
This was very good! From an ingredients perspective, I did not change a thing (didn't use the yogurt but garnished with Sour Cream)but from a preparation perspective, I did make a few alterations to hide the veggies from my children. I threw the cooked onions/garlic and the Rotel into the food processor with the beans and broth. It came out great and I suspect the leftovers will be better tomorrow. The soup appears to be thickening up a bit in the fridge. Thanks for sharing!
I really loved this recipe but I did make a few changes to it: after the garlic/onions were tender I added some finely chooped carrots (I try to add lots of veggies to soup finely chopped, to make it healthier); then I added some Red Hot (hot sauce), and waited til carrots got a bit tender. Then I added everything as indicated in recipe, but added a can of NON-PUREED black beans & about 1/2 c. of chicken broth. I cooked it as directed, adding about a cup of corn at end, some shredded cheese for garnish and it was WONDERFUL! So glad I found this recipe. (Next time I might add some chopped zucchini too, for more veggies!) Oh, and I didn't use yogurt--used sour cream for garnish though. :D
