Awesome Healthy Black Bean Soup

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 30 mins

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!

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.

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]

Well I have to admit this is very easy to make! It seemed like it needed a little more spice to it, I can't figure out exactly what it's missing. I topped with fat free sour cream and shredded cheese. Thanks for the recipe!

Lots of flavor, lowfat, and very little fuss.... loved it! I made this according to the recipe, but just added a little garlic. I garnished with the sour cream (light) and crushed corn chips. I also had some shredded cheese to serve on the side for garnish. Thanx for a yummy and healthy soup!
