Cooking Together–Chipotle Black Bean Soup

Here are my thoughts on the recipe:

Ease of preparation: This was easy to make, but you do have to let it simmer for 30 min. so give yourself some time. Also, I highly recommend using one of my favorite kitchen tools for the blending part. Pouring it into a blender is just so messy. Seriously…if you make a lot of soups that involve blending (or even just every once in awhile) invest in a hand blender.

Overall opinion: For me, I thought that without the toppings this soup would be a bit lacking. But I did enjoy it with the toppings. Also, I finally found a recipe my husband liked! So that’s worth a lot! I would say you definitely need to like black beans if you’re going to try this one.

Husband thoughts: He liked this soup a lot….well, at least a lot better than the past couple dishes I’ve tried. 

Would you have it again: We would have it again, especially since Rick said he’d like to have it again, but it’s not at the top of my list.

How did you serve it? We had it for dinner, and topped it with sour cream, cheese, and tortilla chips. Don’t skip out on the toppings! I think this soup would be really boring without them.

Would you change anything next time: I think topping with green onions, diced tomatoes, and cilantro would be good!

General Comments: If you like black beans, and like soup, this would be a great recipe to try!
