Quick and Easy Black Bean Soup

We had sub sandwiches for my hubby’s Birthday Dinner.  I decided last minute to make a soup to go with them.  This black bean soup was very quick and easy to put together and very filling and good.  I love soups!!!!

 Quick and Easy Black Bean Soup


1 tablespoons oil

¾ cup finely chopped onions

¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste

2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes, undrained

1 (15 oz) can black beans, undrained

1 (15 0z) can of corn, undrained

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

water, if necessary (I usually will clean out the cans by adding a little water  to the cans and then adding it to the soup base)

Shredded Cheese, Yogurt or sour cream (optional)


Sauté the onions and cayenne in the oil for about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for about 1 minute more.

Add the cumin and tomatoes with their juice. Simmer, covered, for another 5 minutes.

Add the black beans and corn with their liquid. Simmer, covered, for an additional 5 minutes. Stir occasionally to keep from sticking.

~ I double this recipe.  I have also added a can of tomato sauce, this will make it thicker.   It is good either way.

Add shredded cheese and spoonful or yogurt or sour cream to each bowl.
