I have been thinking about making a soup with black beans, and I love Chorizo, so I put a soup together for my honey! He is a bean man for sure!
I looked for some recipes online, but did not really find anything close to what I was looking for, so I winged it as usual!
The soup was rich and delicious, the Chorizo basically melted and made the soup so full flavored!
1 tube of pork Chorizo
1 16 oz bag of black beans
Broth of your choice (I used one carton vegetarian and half of a carton of beef broth)
1/2 a yellow onion, diced
4 stalks of celery, chopped
1 can diced tomatoes
2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
salt and pepper to taste
6-10 good shakes of Franks Red Hot
Celery salt, several shakes
1 tsp or so of chili powder
1 tsp or so of cumin
First put your beans in a bowl and cover with water, soak overnight
The next day rinse and drain your beans
Place your Chorizo in your soup pot and get it sauteing, add your onions and celery and it will eventually turn into a paste almost. Add the garlic and keep stirring, when the meat is browned, add the broth (1 and a half cartons to start), stir well
Add the beans and the remaining ingredients and cook until thick and the beans are tender. This took several hours for me and I added more broth as needed.
Serve with Cilantro and Sour Cream if you wish!
