#SundaySupper Spicy Black Bean Soup

Some of my favorite comfort foods are usually carb packed – you know, mac n cheese, pizza, vegetable pot pies! Oh yes. But as the cold weather sets in, my comfort turns to soup and lots of soup. Broccoli and cheese (one of my favorites), chicken noodle soup, any kind of stew, yes,…soup and I become best friends. I like them hearty and I like them creamy. I like them spicy hot or cucumber cool, I like everything in between. Did I mention potato yet? I do like a creamy potato soup. Soup should have been my middle name but that would just be weird.

This #SundaySupper, Isabel at Family Foodie, is our host around the table! Wahoo and she’s bringing a very special guest. You want to know who? Okay, since you all are family at my table, I’ll tell ya… Lee Woodruff! What?! What! Please join  Lee and our Sunday Supper Team during our chat on Sunday at 7pm Eastern Time.  Be sure to use hashtag #SundaySupper

I’m happy to bring you the first soup of the cold season – or aka Fall. And by the way, we did have our first frost this morning, so believe me, it is getting cold out there. (Fingers crossed ya’ll, I want to shovel some snow this year!)

Let me warm your toes and ears with some Spicy Black Bean Soup!



  • 1 red onion: chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic: minced
  • 2 (15 oz) cans black beans, drained
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 carrots: sliced
  • 1 celery: sliced
  • 29 oz vegetable broth
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) canned tomatoes
  • 1 can (4 oz) green chillies
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1/4 tsp celery seed
  • salt and pepper

Recipe as follows:

Step 1: Coat bottom of large saucepan with cooking spray. Add onion and garlic and cook for 3-5 minutes over medium-low. Stir often not to burn.

Step 2: Meanwhile, in a blender, combine 1 can beans with red pepper and cumin. Blend or use your fork to mash and combine together.

Note: You can absolutely use your fork, it does the same thing but I like to blend to make sure its well combined. The mixture should look like this:

Step 3: Add carrots and celery to onion mixture and cook over low heat, 5-7 minutes. I like my vegetables to be nice and soft. If you like a “bite” to yours, cook for less time.

Step 4: Add bean mixture and stir

Step 5: Add second can of beans, broth, tomatoes, green chillies, corn and celery seeds. Bring to a boil.

Step 6: Lower heat to medium – low and simmer for 25 minutes. Add pepper (and if using salt).

Step 7: Ladle and serve!

Let’s keeping feasting and comforting, shall we? Okay, I’m gamed! Here are some more comforting recipes from an amazing group, our #SundaySupper team!

    I absolutely love black beans and this soup sounds amazing. I have some leftover dried black beans that I cooked up for a different recipe, I think I might whip up smaller portion version of this for my lunch today
