Black Bean Soup

My sister shared this soup recipe with me. I added corn to ours simply because we love our sweet white corn. This is an awesome soup, especially with extra lime and cilantro...if you like those.

Black Bean Soup
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 stalk celery, diced
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1-2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper
  • 1 c. chicken broth
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 (4 oz) can diced green chilies
  • 1 c. white sweet corn
  • 1 can black beans, drained & rinsed
  • 1 can black beans, pureed with liquid
  • 1/2 c. chopped cilantro
  • 1 lime
  • Sour cream
Cooking Directions
In sauce pan, saute onion, celery and carrot in olive oil. Cook until tender. Add salt, cumin, coriander, and pepper and cook another minute.
