Easy Black Bean Soup

Categories: EasySoups
Contributed by: mom2ty,maya&ayla

1 cup salsa
2 - 15.5oz cans black beans (drained and rinsed)
2 cups chicken broth

Garnish: (you can pick and choose garnishes)
Sour Cream
Lime Juice
Sherry (a dash of sherry tastes great in the soup and reduces the pastey-ness (sp?) of the beans)
Green Onions
Radishes Chopped
Shredded Cheese

Heat Salsa in sauce pan for 5 minutes, add beans and broth ... bring to a boil and let it simmer for about 15 minutes. Cool slightly and puree 3/4 of mixture in blender. *I usually puree full batch because I like my soup smooth* Return to soup pot and heat through.

Place garishes on table so people can add what they want. With this variety soup can take on many different flavors. Serve with crusty bread and salad.

Mmmmm ... all these recipes look so good. Looks like I will be adding to my shopping list this week.
