Mexican Black Bean Soup with Sausage Recipe
Ingredients
Instructions
  1. In a medium saucepan, heat the olive oil until shimmering.
  2. Add the onion and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally until softened, about 3 minutes.
  3. Add the garlic and the chipotle or ground chipotle, cumin and oregano and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
  4. Add the black beans and chicken stock and simmer, partially covered, for 15 minutes.
  5. Using a potato masher, coarsely crush some of the beans (we skipped this step).
  6. Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over high heat.
  7. Add the sausage and cook until browned, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.
  8. Add the sausage to the beans.
  9. Then add the lime juice and cilantro. Season with salt and pepper.
  10. Simmer the soup for 2 minutes to allow the flavors to blend, or longer if you’d like!
  11. Ladle the soup into bowls and serve, passing the sour cream and lime wedges separately.
