If you know about my history you know that at one time I could not make soup at all. I was soup maker challenged. Now, I can tear up a pot of soup like nobody's business (ask anyone who has had my chicken noodle soup!!)
My stepmom loves my black bean soup! Here's my confession. It's the easiest thing in the world! I always give I to her for Mother's Day but she requested it early so now I have to think of a new gift idea!
2 cans black beans
1 container of fresh salsa
Heat up beans in pot, add salsa. Blend until smooth.
That's it. Instant yum!
Sometimes (I did this time) I sauté an onion, a green or red pepper then add the beans & salsa and then add some cumin (I don't know how much maybe a tablespoon or so)
