Easy Black Bean Soup

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by flower7

This is a fairly quick to throw together soup that I came up with recently and quite enjoyed the results! If you can't find refried black beans, you could use cooked black beans that have been pureed.

This was delicious! Not too stew-y but not watery either, the perfect consistency. I had to add more spices at the end of the cooking time though. (We like pronounced flavor.) I also omitted the thyme and used freshly cooked black beans. Served with a dollop of creamy, mild guacamole. Very good on a cold, snowy day. Thanks for posting. cg
