Why You'll Love This Recipe
All good things in life start and end with bacon. Bacon Black Bean Soup is no exception. In fact, I think my taste buds flipped out the first time I created this comforting dish. It's definitely all about the toppings!
In addition to black beans and tomatoes, there's cheese on top, sour cream, diced peppers, onions, and of course...bacon. It's like an explosion starts the minute you take a bite and never stops until it's in your belly. Yum to the YUM!
How to Make Bacon Black Bean Soup
Cook the bacon until it's crispy, then remove and drain on paper towels. Add diced onion and colorful peppers to the bacon grease left in the dutch oven . Toss in some minced garlic. Sauté until tender, then add a Tbsp. of flour and cook for 2 minutes.
Add a can of diced tomatoes, cumin and chipotle seasoning to the mix. Stir well over medium heat. Mix in black beans and beef broth. Cover and continue to cook over medium low heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
When the soup has been cooking a while, add 16 oz. of tomato soup and stir. I use Trader Joe's Organic Tomato & Roasted Red Pepper Soup (ad) in many of my recipes. It adds amazing flavor and no preservatives. Allow the soup to simmer for a few more minutes, then it's ready to scoop into bowls!
The final step is the fun part. Add a big dollop of sour cream to each bowl of soup, followed by shredded cheese, colorful peppers, diced onions and crumbled bacon. Man. Oh MAN. OH MY DEAR MAN!
Sorry, I lost control. But, Bacon Black Bean Soup really is that good.
