Black Bean Soup
3 15 oz cans of black beans, drained and rinsed
1 3/4 cups gfcf vegetable broth
1 cup fresh salsa
1/4 tsp ground oregano
1/4 tsp chili powder (or more, to taste)
1/8 tsp smoked chipotle chili powder (optional)
Several dashes hot sauce (optional)
Reserve one cup of the beans in a separate bowl. Place remaining beans, broth and salsa in the blender. Process until fairly smooth, then pour into saucepan. Mash reserved beans slightly with a fork. Add to the saucepan with remaining ingredients. Cook over medium heat for ten minutes to blend flavors. Adjust seasoning to taste before serving.
Note: I just put everything in a pan, cook for ten minutes, then blend with my immersible blender. Its very good with lime wedges.
