Winter Black Bean Soup
A hot soup tastes just right in the cold winter months. It is filling and warms me to the core. Our Winter Black Bean Soup is simple to make with only few ingredients. When you use the Mexican style tomatoes and spices you will get a little heat. To add more heat add a chopped jalapeno pepper. To cool it down use diced tomatoes and less chili powder.
What to do with Dried Beans?
I recently bought a bag of dried beans on clearance at the grocery store. I usually buy canned beans, but it was too good of a deal to pass up. The problem was that I didn’t know how to prepare them! Years ago, I tried to cook dried beans and they ended up crunchy and undercooked.
