Black Bean Soup


"A versatile side or main course, black bean soup is a classic dish from Cuba that is enjoyed throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. Black bean soup recipes allow for great versatility as a soup that stands alone or poured over rice for an elegant and unexpectedly flavorful main course. Our GOYA® Cuban Black Bean Soup packs a delicious, seasoned bite that won't overwhelm the satisfying texture of our naturally low-fat beans."

  • Ready In

  1. Heat oil in medium saucepan over medium heat. Add cumin, garlic, oregano and Sazon to pot. Cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add wine; bring to a boil. Add 1 cup water, beans, bay leaves, brown sugar and vinegar; bring bean mixture to a boil. Reduce to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until mixture thickens and ingredients come together, about 15 minutes. Season soup with Adobo; discard bay leaf.
  2. Divide soup evenly among serving bowls. Garnish with onions and cilantro, if desired.


  • Cooking Tip from LA COCINA GOYA
  • Tastier bean soup: If your soup has a good consistency, but the beans haven't fully absorbed the flavors of the herbs and spices, try this: Turn off the heat and let the soup sit, covered, 10-15 minutes more. This hot environment will encourage the seasonings to penetrate the beans, without allowing any liquid to evaporate, so your soup will look as good as it tastes!

This was so easy to make and such a hit in my house that definitely will make it again, but Next time, i have to double the recipe since there wasn't a bean left in the pot!

Yummy! Made this last night, was very easy to prepare and not time-consuming which I like. A very healthy recipe even though it is incredibly filling. Would also be good with shredded chicken.

I chose to puree the soup for a smooth consistency and we loved it. I also added a bit of spice with some chipotles in adobo.

Great recipe! I added everything to fresh beans and it turned out great. I did thicken a bit with flour and water, but all in all, I will use this recipe again.
