Black Bean and Salsa Soup

I came across this recipe and had to give it a try because I always have the ingredients on hand. It was wonderful and kept me full all night. If you are like me and don’t pay attention to the “fill” line on your food processor you may want to use your blender. I made a big mess with my food processor…oops!

Adapted from Newlywed Nibbles, originally from All Recipes


2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, drained and rinsed
1 1/2 cups chicken broth (or vegetable broth to make it vegetarian)
1 cup chunky salsa
1 teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon smoked paprika
hot sauce
salt and pepper
sour cream, shredded cheese


In an electric food processor or blender, combine beans, broth, salsa, cumin, smoked paprika, hot sauce, salt and pepper. Blend until fairly smooth.

Heat the bean mixture in a saucepan over medium heat until thoroughly heated.

Garnish your serving with sour cream and shredded cheese.
