This easy and delicious black bean soup recipe does not scrimp on flavor. Onions, garlic, cumin, coriander, and chipotle peppers in adobo are slow cooked with brothy black beans until tender. Once the soup has cooked, half of the mixture is pureed to create a hearty, yet, creamy texture. This soup has a robust smoky-spicy flavor provided by the chipotle peppers, which are simply dried, smoked jalapenos. The adobo is a tangy tomato sauce added during the canning process to rehydrate the dried chilis while also providing additional flavor. Be sure to top your black bean soup with a wide array of toppings such as sour cream, fresh cilantro, pickled red onions, avocados, or lime wedges.
