Ingredients

For this tasty soup recipe, you need the following ingredients:

  • 60 ounces black beans (4 – 15 ounce cans)
  • 4 cups vegetable broth or chicken broth
  • 2-3 tbsp minced canned chipotle chile in adobo sauce
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt or sour cream
  • 1 tsp grated lime zest plus lime wedges for serving
  • salt and pepper to taste

How To Make Black Bean Soup

Pour the cans of beans and their liquid, broth, and chipotle into a Dutch oven. Bring the soup mixture to a boil and then reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the beans begin to break down – it should take around 20 to 25 minutes.

Take a potato masher and coarsely mash the beans in the pot.

Stir in yogurt or sour cream and lime zest and then season with salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with fresh cilantro and serve with lime wedges.

Recipe Tips

If you like soup on the thicker side, cut the amount of broth in half – only use 2 cups. If that seems too thick, you can always add more broth.

Squeeze a little fresh lime juice over the top of the bowl of soup for a burst of citrus goodness.
