Our Best Bites: Black Bean Soup

Still going through recipes in my draft folder which went unposted due to lack of pictures or time. Grrr...I was looking for this not too long ago when I made black bean soup for my husband. I wound up making this slower cooker version which my husband likes but I find rather bland. This recipe from the first Our Best Bites cookbook if I remember correctly was very tasty and had just enough heat for me.

Black Bean Soup (Our Best Bites cookbook)

3/4 c carrots, diced
3/4 c celery, diced
1 c onion, diced
4 cloves garlic
2-15 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
1-3.5 oz c diced green chilies
2-15 oz c beef broth
1 tsp kosher salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp oregano
1 bay leaf
1 lime, juiced

Saute carrots, celery, onion and garlic and saute for 4-5 minutes.

Add black beans, chilies, and broth. Stir to combine. Add spices. Simmer uncovered 20-25 min until carrots are tender

Puree soup. If the soup is too thick, thin with a little water or broth. Squeeze in lime juice.
