Soup…What’s Saving My Life Right Now

A co-worker asked on a recent meeting as an icebreaker question ‘what’s saving your life right now?’ My response was a good book. The more I thought about it though, soup should have been my answer. I’m in a real rut of meal planning right now. The thought of having to think about what to cook my family for supper makes my head hurt. Soup to the rescue! My family loves soup and I’m grateful for that. Here’s what I love about soup.

Spend Smart. Eat Smart.

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.
