What You'll Need

  • 1 small onion, finely chopped

What to Do

  1. Place the onion in a large microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave at 100% power for 2 minutes, or until the onion is tender.
  2. In a blender, puree one can of black beans with its liquid until smooth. Add to the onions along with the remaining can of undrained beans. Add the chicken broth, salsa, and cumin; mix well.

can I use dried beans and if so how many ounces should I use

Hi Lily! Unfortunately, dried beans cannot be used in this recipe. Dried beans need to be soaked all night, then cooked for several hours. This recipe is for a quick and shortcut version of black bean soup.

this is a cinch to prepare and absolutely scrumptious!

What - no rice?! Delish with rice...
