One-Pot Mexicali Black Bean Soup

with the Works

This week, we’re serving a hearty, flavorful black bean soup that cooks up in one pot, and is ready in just 20 minutes! The beans are simmered in a richly spiced broth with sauteed onion, tomato paste, and Southwest seasonings until the soup is thick and the beans are infused with flavor. For toppings, load up with “the works”—cheddar cheese, smoky red pepper crema, and crushed blue corn tortilla chips. That’s what we call a truly SOUP-er supper.

Small Bowl
Large Pot



• Wash and dry produce. • Halve, peel, and finely dice onion until you have ¾ cup (1½ cups for 4 servings). Drain beans over a small bowl, reserving liquid.

Start Soup

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

Finish Soup

• 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 simmer a little less if you prefer a thinner broth! You’re the chef, after all. • Taste and season with salt and pepper. Turn off heat.

Finish & Serve

• Crush a few tortilla chips. • Divide soup between bowls and top with 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.
