Black Bean Soup

Number of Servings: 12 (265 g)
Active Time: 20 min.
Total Time: 7 hours


  • 2 cups dried black beans
  • 2 cups cold water
  • 24 oz. low sodium beef broth
  • 28 oz. canned diced tomatoes
  • 1 (15 oz.) can corn
  • 1 cup water (more as needed)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, minced (optional)
  • Juice from 1 lime


  1. Place beans in colander. Sift through with fingers, discarding shriveled beans and foreign objects. Wash thoroughly and sift through again. Place beans and cold water in a four-quart (or larger) dutch oven or slow cooker and soak for one hour.
  2. Add remaining ingredients (except lime juice and seasoning) and stir. Cover and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to maintain a slow simmer. Cook 5 – 7 hours or until beans are soft and fully cooked. While cooking, stir occasionally, adjusting heat and adding liquid as needed. (Optional though recommended step: purée about 2 cups of cooked mixture in a blender or food processor, then add back to soup.) Add lime juice, salt and pepper and serve. Reheats well though may need additional liquid.
