Crockpot Black Bean Soup

Here is a great recipe for your crockpot. This is one of those uber healthy meals, and this recipe lends itself to substitutions and additions well.

Spicy Black Bean Soup
- 1 pound dry black beans, soaked overnight (can substitute with 2 cans of beans, be sure to rinse them first)
- 1/8 cup diced jalapeno peppers

- 2 tomatoes, seeded and chopped (can substitute a can of diced tomatoes)
- 6 cups chicken broth
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

Combine all ingredients, cook in crock pot for 6-8 hours on low.

You can mash some of the beans at the end or run it all through a food processor (heat proof) if you like a smoother texture.

If you want it hotter, add some cayenne pepper or hot sauce (like Cholula or Tabasco)

You can add chicken to the recipe, cut into 1 inch pieces and cook before adding.

Last time I made it, I added a cup of corn and half a diced onion.

Best topped with some sour cream and fresh salsa.
