This Black Bean Soup is like tacos in soup form. Whip it up in 30 minutes, then top it with all your favorites.


  • 3 15-oz. cans black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp. chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1 tbsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 lime
Optional toppings:
  • Fire-roasted corn
  • Tortilla strips or corn chips
  • Salsa
  • Avocado
  • Brown rice
  • Hot sauce
  • Cilantro


  1. In a soup pot, add black beans and fill with just enough water to cover beans by about 1 inch.
  2. Add diced onion, garlic, chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, cumin, smoked paprika, and salt.
  3. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cover. Let simmer until onions are translucent.
  4. Using an immersion blender, blend soup until smooth. Alternatively, transfer to a blender in small batches and blend until smooth.
  5. Add a squeeze of lime juice to brighten the flavor.
  6. Serve with your favorite toppings.
