    Cookgirl's Note:

    From Fitness magazine February 2006. Very easy to make and vegan, too! As a suggestion, serve with Restaurant's Corn Tortillas. Also, I like to cook up a pot of brown rice and add a large spoonful to each serving of soup for a complete meal in a bowl. Finally, I have reduced the coconut milk by half and the soup was still delicious! There you go!

    1. 1
      In a soup pot over medium heat, warm the olive oil. Add the onion, garlic, cumin and chipotle. Saute, stirring occasionally for approximately 5 minutes.
    2. 2
      Add 1/2 cup water, reducing heat to low, continuing to cook for 12-15 minutes or until onion is softened.
    3. 3
      Add the black beans (plus the bean liquid if using canned), coconut milk, and 2 1/2 cups water or stock. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil.
    4. 4
      Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer the soup for 15 minutes.
    5. 5
      Scoop out 1 cup of the beans and some liquid; place in a mixing bowl. Puree the 1 cup of beans until smooth then return to the soup pot. Stir to thicken, blending more beans if you wish to desired consistency. (Or you can use a hand held immersion blender and blend the soup that way.).
    6. 6
      Adjust seasoning if necessary, adding salt and pepper as needed.
    7. 7
      Garnish each serving with lime wedges, diced white onion and cilantro leaves and diced tomatoes.

      This was delicious! I added the lime juice and cilantro straight to the pot. So easy and so good!

      This soup was fantastic. Chipotle, coconut and black beans just go together. Make sure you salt it right taste. Yum ! I will definitely make this again.

      A very good starter soup. I tend to like a bit more flavor and spice however. I added diced carrots, kernel corn, and added 2 more chipotle peppers. To top it off I added medium sized grilled shrimp, pre-spiced for added texture and flavor. I veer toward the very spicy, meaning hot foods, so I sprinkled some red hot chili peppers (a good teaspoon) and some Mrs. Dash extra spicy. I overdid it a bit, so I would not use both. Nonetheless, it was quite what the doctor ordered.
