Black Bean Soup

Ingredients:

1 Tbl olive oil

3/4 c diced carrots

1 c diced onion

3 cups precooked black beans (or 2 cans rinsed)

1-3 4 oz can green chilies (depending on the spice level you prefer. I use two)

3 cups beef broth

1 tea salt

1/8 tea pepper

1/2 tea chili powder

1/2 tea cumin 

1/2 tea oregano

Sauté olive oil, onions and carrots for 3 minutes in a large pot. Add beans, green chilies and beef broth and simmer for 10 minutes.  Add in salt, pepper, chili powder, cumin and oregano. Run through blender in batches. Don't over blend, you want to leave it a little chunky. Place back into pot and simmer until you are read to serve.

The sky is the limit with toppings.  Serve with crusty bread, tortilla chips, tomatoes, avocado, peppers, sour cream, pepper jack cheese or absolutely nothing at all!  This is delicious, super healthy and filling! Enjoy!!
