Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

This is just the first of many soup recipes I have that use black beans. I love black beans in soup and this particular recipe is super quick and easy making it perfect for this ultra-busy time of year.

The salsa adds tomato, onion and pepper to this all at once so there's no chopping or dicing at all. This can also go vegan easily - just leave the garnish off of the top and use vegetable stock as a base.

This was so easy and so yummy! The Zoo gave it all "ups" on the Z-TUD rating system (Zoo Thumbs Up/Down). In fact one of the kids gave it 2 thumbs up instead of just one. LOL! It was a fast dinner to make right before going to see Christmas Lights last night. Thanks!

Ohmyohmy. Must attempt. I'm a soupaholic, so this whole blog is a windfall for me.
