My new favorite quick and yummy soup! Add sausage if you'd like or switch the broth to vegetable broth and it's vegetarian. I skip the blender part but to each their own. Enjoy!

Black Bean Soup with Salsa   
Serves 4, Prep: 5 minutes Ready in: 35 minutes
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 cups diced onion
1 green bell pepper, cut into medium dice
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon ground cumin   
2 (15.5 ounce) cans black beans, drained
3 cups chicken broth, divided
Salt and ground black pepper, to taste
1/4 cup low-fat sour cream
1/4 cup prepared salsa

1.   Heat oil in a soup pot over low heat while chopping the vegetables. Increase heat to medium-high and stir in onion and green pepper. Saute until tender; about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and cumin and saute until fragrant; about 1 minute.
2.   Stir in beans and 2 1/2 cups chicken broth. Season with salt and pepper and simmer for 15 minutes.
3.   Pour black bean mixture into a blender. Making sure to remove canister cap for steam to escape, puree until smooth; about 30 seconds.
4.   Return soup to pot, stir in remaining broth and heat through. Ladle a portion of soup into each bowl. Garnish with sour cream and salsa and serve.

This sounds delish!  Thanks! 

And, BTW, I noticed the part in the recipe that says "Making sure to remove canister cap for steam to escape" - ah HAH!  THAT'S why the tomato soup I made last week went everywhere.......  LOL!  So much for my 'experience'.
