Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium saucepan, heat the olive oil until shimmering. Add the onion and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic along with the chipotle, cumin and oregano and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 2 minutes. Add the black beans and chicken stock and simmer, partially covered, for 15 minutes. Using a potato masher, coarsely crush some of the beans.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over high heat. Add the sausage and cook until browned, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Add the sausage to the beans, along with the lime juice and cilantro; season with salt and pepper. Simmer the soup for 2 minutes to allow the flavors to blend. Ladle the soup into bowls and serve, passing the sour cream and lime wedges separately.

This soup is very good easy to make and much spicier the second day. My husband I and I both enjoyed this. Thanks for the recipe.

WOW! This is SOOO good! I made it exactly as indicated and it was fantastic. I don't think it could possibly be improved. I especially like that "zing" of the lime when added at the table. It contrasts with the cool, creamy sour cream and the "BAM!" of the chipotle. Delicious!
