My black bean obsession strikes again! And I am experiencing a little deja vu with that sentence – I am pretty sure I have typed it here before. I really need to find a new bean.
But I haven’t and black beans are still where it’s at for me.
Black bean soup is one of our go-to recipes when I’m short on time. Since I’m obsessed with black beans, we have cans and cans of black beans in our pantry.
I’m always ready for a black bean soup craving.
3 Ingredient Black Bean Soup Recipe
The first time I made this easy 3 ingredient black bean soup, I was hungry and my cupboards were bare. I kind of shot for the moon and grabbed some of the canned goods I had…threw it all in a pot and then grabbed my immersion blender.
I knew that since the main ingredient was black beans I was sure to enjoy it no matter what. But I wasn’t sure what Mr. B would say.
It totally passed the Mr. B. test.
I swear, get yourself a cupboard of random cans and an immersion blender. Put 3 cans together and make sure there is some liquid, and I feel you can throw a soup together too.
I garnished this recipe for black bean soup with cheese and some chives for color but really you don’t need to. Maybe I’m just biased because I like this soup recipe so much.
Red Gold makes some really awesome diced tomato varieties. If you’re at the store, stock up on cans of the diced tomatoes with green chiles. You won’t feel the need to add an extra ingredients like spices because there will be more than enough flavor.
You’re welcome. 🙂
