Easy Crock Pot Black Bean Soup

Do you want an easy crock pot meal? ¬†This black bean soup is healthy and delicious and so easy. ¬†You can make it mild to hot depending on your tastes. ¬†I like mine a little spicy! ¬†Top it with salsa, sliced avocado and chopped cilantro if you want to be fancy pants! ¬†It’s good with cornbread or warm crusty whole grain bread or tortilla chips. ¬†Just put all the ingredients in the crock pot and cook on high for 8 hours… you will have an awesome meal when you get home.

RECIPE: Serves 6

2 cups dry black beans

6 cups of water

1 150z can of diced tomatoes (fire roasted add extra flavor)

1 can of diced tomatoes and green chili peppers (I use medium Rotel and it is spicy!)

1 Tablespoon dried onion flakes

1 Teaspoon garlic powder

1 Teaspoon chili powder

1 Teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 Teaspoon chipotle powder

1 Teaspoon smoked paprika

Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 8 hours. ¬†If the beans soak up too much of the liquid… be prepared to add a cup of water or vegetable broth before serving. ¬†All beans and all crock pots are different.

Enjoy
