Mama's Chipotle Black Bean Soup
This is my NEW favourite winter soup recipe...stolen from my Mom! It's simple but so flavourful and satisfying!
Here's what you'll need...
1 19 oz can of black beans (make sure it's the 19 oz!) drained and rinsed
1 medium-sized sweet onion, diced
3 stalks celery, chopped
2 large carrots, chopped
2 teaspoons of cumin
1/4 teaspoon of cayenne
1/2 teaspoon of salt
2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (you can buy these canned), chopped
1/2 cup - 3/4 cup of your favourite salsa
2 1/2 cups water
1 avocado, sliced
1 lime cut into wedges
1/2 cup of cooked corn
A few handfuls of crushed tortilla chips
Saute onion, celery and carrots in a little water. Add spices and chipotle peppers. Add beans and water. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for about 20 - 30 minutes.
Add salsa and puree in blender.
Pour soup into a bowl and garnish with sliced avocado, a dollop of salsa, a squeeze of lime juice, cooked corn and crushed tortilla chips.
