    Default Black Bean Soup

    Description: This wonderful recipe is awesome paired with cornbread.
    The best black bean soup is made with dried black beans, rather than canned. Be sure to pick through the dried beans carefully to remove any split kernels or tiny rocks that sometimes get mixed in.
    Serving Size: Lots. Leftovers freeze well.
    Difficulty: Easy

    1. 1 pound dried black beans
    2. 1/4 cup olive oil
    3. 1/4 pound bacon
    4. 1/4 pound diced
    5. ham
    6. 4 onions, chopped
    7. 4 garlic cloves, minced
    8. 3 stalks celery including leaves, chopped
    9. 1-1/2 cups uncooked brown rice
    10. 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    11. 2 teaspoons ground cumin
    12. 3 quarts chicken broth
    13. 1/4 cup dry white wine
    14. 1/2 cup dry sherry
    1. Wash black beans, cover with water and allow to soak overnight; rinse; drain; set aside.
    1. Pour oil into a large soup pot. Add the bacon, ham, onion, garlic and celery. Cook at high simmer until vegetables are soft, about 30 minutes. Add beans, rice, seasonings, and broth to soup pot. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer 2-1/2 to 3 hours.
    2. Let soup cool; put through the blender a little at a time, until smooth. Return to soup pot; reheat on low about 45 minutes, adding wine and sherry. Serve hot.
    3. NOTE: We prefer this soup a little chunky with texture instead of smooth as recipe states. Enjoy!

    Oh yes! This beats my black bean soup hands down. I need a free weekend to try this. I love spicy foods, so I will add a little zing with some hot peppers, but I bet it will be awesome. Thanks so much, Tami.

    Sounds Yummy Tami, Years ago I have a recipe for blk bean soup made with Smoked Ham Hocks and you served it with sour cream. Have since lost the recipe, wish I had it back.
