DIRECTIONS

  • In a largish pot over medium heat render down the bacon until it's just crispy bits.
  • Add the carrot, celery, and shallot and sautee until the carrot and celery start to become tender.
  • Add the beef broth and cayenne pepper and bring to a simmer, simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Add the black beans and continue to simmer for an additional 5 minutes, until the beans are heated through.
  • Using a stick blender, (or your regular blender in batches), blend the soup until smooth.
  • With the soup back on the heat stir in the Asiago until it's melted.
  • Ladle the soup into individual crocks (or other broiler proof dishes) and top with a slice of the french bread. Sprinkle each round with grated Gouda. Broil on high for about 3 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Watch it carefully!
