carrot, peeled and thinly sliced
2 (15 ounce) cans
1 (14 ounce) can
cubed cooked ham
ground black pepper to taste
shredded Cheddar cheese
This recipe was awesome! I did make some of the suggested changes. I used a red pepper, 1 stalk of celery, about 1/4 C. of frozen corn, a healthy dash of cayenne, 4 cloves of garlic and 1/2 tsp. of cumin. Once done, I stirred in the juice of 1/2 a fresh lime. Also, I salted the veggies while sauteing in the beginning, so I didn't use any more in the recipe. Garnished with sour cream, salsa, cilantro, and finely grated cheddar-jack cheese. We had corn muffins on the side to dip in the soup. My husband, who is not a big bean eater loved it. Thanks for the post!
I liked it - Shem was underwhelmed
Both my husband and I loved it (and he's not a fan of soups, or beans, or veggies). My adjustments include: subbing 1 can of refried black beans for 1 can of black beans, thereby eliminating need for blender. Used red bell pepper instead of green (YUM), garlic powder instead of garlic, 2 carrots instead of 1, omitted ham because none on hand, added juice of 1/2 a lime. It was fabulous! Garnished with fresh cilantro, sour cream, salsa, fried tortilla strips. Will definitely make again. This is a very mild version, could spice it up if preferred. Quick and easy.
Made this the other evening and we LOVED it! Made it exactly as written but left out the ham. I ran it all through the food processor, thinking that I wanted a little texture in the soup, but after trying it, I think I'd prefer it being smoother. Next time I will use the blender and puree it. It was kind of a weird color and looked a little strange while cooking, but it tasted fantastic! It was even better for lunch the next day! Highly recommend!
I loved this recipe! I prefer a 'smooth" black bean so when finished cooking I pureed it in a blender. It took me straight back to Mexico (where I think the best black bean soup is found). Thanks for a great recipe.
I was a bit skeptical of this at first, but this was absolutely DELICIOUS!!
AMAZING!!! I added an extra carrot and 1/2 tsp cumin. Once I added all the ingedients, I used an immersion blender and blended the whole soup. I served it with cheese and fried tortilla strips. This is absolutely delicious and will become a regular on our menu!
My modifications included red pepper instead of green, sea salt, 2 stalks celery, 2 carrots, lots more cumin, adobo and cayenne pepper. I also used vegetable stock instead of chicken broth. It was great and hearty and thick. I omitted the ham, sour creeam and cheese because I am vegetarian, I think next tiem I will add tomatos for more of a chili feel.
