Spicy Black Bean Soup

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by aerobicon

Easy, spicy, and healthy. This will fill you up, and warm you up as well. Serve it with fresh lime wedges for a citrus kick. You could also serve it over brown rice.

Spicy and Healthy? Perfect combination. I personally like more heat, so I added plenty of red pepper flakes to start. Delicious!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a 3 quart sauce pan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and saute, stirring occasionally until tender. This takes about 5-7 minutes.
  2. Stir in garlic and spices, cook for about a minute.
  3. Stir in beans, broth, and can of tomatoes (including liquid from tomatoes). Add a pinch of salt, if you'd like.
  4. Heat to high heat until soup is boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for about 15 minutes.
  5. Spoon about 1/3 of mixture into a blender or food processor and pulse until smooth. You can do more or less, depending on how thick you want the soup or how many whole beans you want in it. Combine pureed mixture with rest of soup and serve with lime wedges.
