This Hearty Southwest Black Bean soup is super easy to prepare and, like many soups and chilis, it only gets better with age.  You can have it on the table in 30 minutes, but if you have time, make it early and let it simmer a few hours or even a day ahead before serving.  The bold flavors get a chance to mingle with the beans and the soup becomes a zippy southwest nirvana!

I love to keep my pantry stocked with beans (Bush’s Beans being our favorite), they add texture and flavor and come in super handy when I forget to take something out of the freezer for dinner.  Beans are filling and have great nutritional value, making them easy to turn into a delicious dish I feel good about serving.  I made this black bean soup the other day when scouring the pantry for something to make for dinner.  I haven’t gone grocery shopping since before Christmas and we are in the midst of historical flooding — many roads and highways are shut down.  I checked my can goods, and as always, I had lots of Bush’s Seasoned Recipe Black Beans, canned corn and even a can tomatoes with green chilis – perfect for making black bean soup!

This black bean soup is all about the rockin’ good flavor.  The spices are going to be key. Feel free to play around with what suits your taste.  If you don’t have something, like the chipotle chili pepper, just leave it out or increase the chili powder or red pepper flakes if you need more zip!

Serve topped with sour cream, cheese and cilantro for more southwest flair. —- This is a good one, if I do say so myself.  Like, I-may-have-eaten-three-bowls-in-two-days – “good”  😉
