Black Bean Soup
I used a fairly usually black bean soup recipe and added some Chorizo I make. Instead of adding the bacon that the recipe called for I used Chorizo , this made a rather spicy but good soup. You can either eat as a soup or spoon it out and sever over rice.
Pre-soak a 10 oz. package of black beans over nigh or use the quick method.
Saute 2 cloves garlic, 2 ribs celery, and a 1/2 red bell pepper , chopped.
Place the soaked beans, and
1/2 teaspoon salt,
1 1/2 teaspoon oregano,
1 bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon thyme
3 quarts chicken broth
2 tablespoons cilantro
Cook on low heat until beans are tender.
Serve as a soup or drained over rice.
