Instant Black Bean Soup

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by stacylu

Recipe out of newspaper. I tend to add more cilantro, chili pepper and salsa for a spicier dish. The longer you cook it, the better the flavors meld. It was originally a vegetarian recipe that I added hamburger to so could easily be converted back! It's my dad's single favorite meal with some nice crusty bread or tortillas.

My daughter made this for Christmas Eve dinner in the crockpot. It simmered all day and tasted fantastic - didn't change a thing.
