Mexicali Black Bean Soup

with the Works

Read more

This week, we’re serving a hearty, flavorful black bean soup that’s ready in just 20 minutes—and it all cooks up in one pot, making cleanup a breeze! The beans are simmered in a richly-spiced broth with diced tomatoes, veggie stock, onion, tomato paste, and Southwest seasonings until the soup is thick and the beans are tender. For toppings, load up your bowl with “the works”—scallions, cheddar cheese, smoky red pepper crema, and crushed blue corn tortilla chips. Now that’s what we call a truly SOUP-er supper.

1

• Wash and dry all produce. • Halve, peel, and finely dice onion until you have ¾ cup (1½ cups for 4 servings). Trim and thinly slice scallions, separating whites from greens. Dice tomato. Drain beans over a small bowl, reserving liquid.

2

• Heat a large drizzle of oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add onion and scallion whites. Cook, stirring, until softened, 3-4 minutes. • Add Southwest Spice; stir until fragrant, 30 seconds. • Stir in diced tomato, tomato paste, and Tex-Mex paste until slightly darkened in color, 1 minute.

3

• Stir 1¾ cups water, stock concentrates, beans, and ¼ cup reserved bean liquid into pot. (For 4 servings, use 3 cups water and ½ cup bean liquid.) Bring to a boil and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened, 5-8 minutes. TIP: Prefer your broth a bit thicker? Simmer a little longer—or vice versa! You’re the chef, after all. • Taste and season with salt and pepper. Turn off heat.

4

• Crush a few tortilla chips. • Divide soup between bowls and top with scallion greens, cheddar, smoky red pepper crema, and as many crushed tortilla chips as you like. (TIP: Start with a few crushed chips and add more as you go to keep them crunchy!) Serve with whole tortilla chips on the side.
