Black Bean Soup

January 25, 2012 in Soups

It’s not paleo, but it’s damn good!!

Roasted Black Bean Soup

1 pack yummy bacon, chopped

1 large onion, chopped

2 red bell peppers, chopped

8-10 garlic cloves, chopped

1 tbsp ketchup

1 tbsp chili powder

5 cans black beans

2 can fire roasted tomatoes

15 ounces chicken broth

salt and pepper to taste

Possible toppings: chips, sour cream, cheese, cilantro, lime.

In a large stock pot, saute the bacon first to get a nice greasy base! Then add the chopped veggies and seasonings. Add all the beans, tomatoes, and broth and then let it simmer for a while. Scoop it into the vitamix and blend it down. Serve with toppings of choice. Enjoy!!

(Note: Because we hardly ever eat beans, our bodies had what you might call a little gut distress after eating this! If you know what I mean! It was worth it, but won’t be happening again for a while. You have been warned!!)
