Recipe by Teacher_01

I've made black bean soup a few different times, each time tweaking it to adjust to my taste. This is really good and is really good for you!

Did make a couple of small changes here, cutting back a little on the amount of cumin, & adding a shake or two of lemon pepper, but other than those small things, the recipe was followed right on down, & we had a great tasting soup, & one I plan on making again! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current round of Pick A Chef]

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place onion, water, broth and cumin in a stock pot and bring to a boil. Reduce to medium heat.
  2. When onions are soft, place beans and rotel in the stock pot. Simmer for 20 minutes.
  3. Blend with a hand blender. ( I don't like thin soup, so I only do this for 20-30 seconds)
  4. Add diced tomatoes and cilantro. Simmer for 10-15 more minutes.
  5. Serve topped with a bit of sour cream and crushed tortilla chips.
