Cheap, Easy, Healthy, Delicious Black Bean Soup

Cheap, Easy, Healthy, Delicious Black Bean Soup

  • 1-2 tbs bacon grease
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 jalapeno, some of the ribs and seeds removed, diced
  • dash of oregano
  • dash of cayenne pepper
  • dash of ancho chili pepper
  • dash of chili powder
  • a large dash of cumin
  • 2 cups of beef broth
  • 2 cans low sodium black beans, undrained
  • 1 roma tomato, diced
  • 1-2 tbs jarred salsa
  • about a 1/2 cup frozen corn, maybe more
  • salt to your liking
  • palmful of chopped cilantro

Saute onion and jalapeño in bacon grease over medium heat until just getting soft. Then add garlic. Add all the spices. Once the garlic begins to get fragrant, give it about 30 more seconds and add the broth. Stir to combine, bring to a boil. Add your beans and give those a stir. Then add corn, as much as you prefer really. Once the corn warms up, give it a taste. I probably added about a teaspoon of salt, maybe a tad more, but I didn’t measure. Let that simmer for about 20 minutes to bring the flavors together then stir in your cilantro. I topped mine with a dollop of sour cream and more cilantro, with a little bit of green onion last night. Today for lunch I topped it with a diced avocado and that was absolutely scrumptious!
