Quick Black Bean Soup

READY IN: 9mins
Recipe by abcdefg

Delicious and amazingly fast black bean soup. I came up with this one by virtue of not having very much to work with one night in college. Many recipes call for sherry, but I think the citrus vodka adds a little more Southwestern "zing." To spice it up even more, cook with 1/2 a finely chopped serrano pepper. Great served over rice and topped with cheddar and sour cream!

I just made this for a quick lunch, and it turned out fine, but warning: don't add the salt unless you are using low-sodium black beans. I didn't add any salt and the taste was quite salty. Test first, before you season!
