I can't remember where I got the original recipe for this soup. I thought it was an Ina Garten recipe, but I couldn't find it on Food Network's website. I know I cut the original recipe in half to cook for two, and that is the recipe I'll give you. This is so yummy. I love spicy soup, so I put extra jalapeno in mine. This is so easy to make and has such an awesome outcome. I used canned beans because I had them on hand, but I have made this with bagged beans. Happy eating!
Cumin flavored Black Bean Soup:
1 T oil
1 small onion, diced
2 jalapenos, diced
2 cloves of garlic, diced
1 T cumin
salt and pepper to taste
1 can of black beans, rinsed and drained
1 14 oz can of diced tomatoes with juice
1. Preheat oil in pan and then cook the onion until soft. Add the jalapenos, garlic, cumin, salt and pepper and cook for a couple more minutes.
2. Put mixture in hot crockpot and add beans and tomatoes (with juice).
3. Cook in crockpot on low for 8-10 hours. Puree the soup in batches and then enjoy! I added some LO taco meat and a little cheese and served the soup with homemade corn muffins.
