Easy Black Bean Soup recipe ~ 5 ingredients and stove to table in under under 30 minutes. This soup is loaded with delicious flavor, protein and fiber making it the ideal healthy weeknight meal.

There are a lot of days that demand an easy, no-fuss meal and if you can find one that goes from stove to table in under 30 minutes, all the better.

This delicious, healthy, power-packed meal cooks all in one pot with just 5 simple ingredients

I originally created this recipe after a trip to Key West several years ago where the breezes are balmy, the Rum Runners flow and there’s a definite Cuban flair to many dishes, including Black Bean Soup.  With the help of a jar of salsa verde, this soup hits every flavor mark and a quick pulse with an immersion blender it has just the right velvety texture. 

It’s soup season. Let’s make soup!

Cheesy Chicken Tortilla Soup ~ thick, creamy, cheesy, tasty packed with chicken, garbanzo beans, chipotle pepper for smoky heat and topped with crispy tortilla strips.

My daughters and I are all on the same page when it comes to our taste in movies. We love spending a Saturday or Sunday afternoon having lunch at the mall and catching a good flick.

One of our favorite lunch spots is a place with amazing Tortilla Soup ~ loaded with chicken in a spicy broth and topped with crispy tortilla strips.

We all get a bowl and share an appetizer so we still have room for the *required* movie popcorn. Cheesy Chicken Tortilla Soup is everything I love about the restaurant version but thicker and includes garbanzo beans, chipotle pepper for heat and smoky flavor and even more cheesy goodness. If you like a spicy, cheesy soup this is it.
