Black Bean Soup!

What can you fix that does not take alot of time , because you need to do all of that homemade baking and cooking? Well I fixed Black bean soup. It takes very little ingredients and most of them you will have on hand. It can be fixed ahead of time and then heated when you need it!
  Black Bean Soup

Here is what you need ,(not pictured :cumin,salt, pepper) Can also be done in the Crock Pot.

Here is what you do:
Add just a bit of olive oil in a pan and saute onion and garlic and jalapeno (if fresh) until onion is translucent.
Next add beans and salsa (I have home canned) about 1 cup and cumin and enough stock until the soup is your desired thickness.  Squeeze a half lime in soup,Simmer for about an hour for flavors marry.
Here is what I serve with it : Chopped jalapenos, shredded Monterrey jack cheese, Guacamole  and corn chips and Sour cream ( I did not serve sour cream, I am trying to cut back.)   So tasty and good! I did not add meat but, you could add browned hamburger to it.
