    Southwestern-Style Black Bean Soup (Gluten-Free)

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    Celiac.com 03/24/2016 - Good black bean soup is a tasty treat on a rainy day. Since we've had a few rainy days lately, I recommend this recipe for a smoky, spicy, flavor-packed southwestern-style vegetarian black bean soup that is a perfect hearty pick for cold, blustery days.

    • 1 can black beans
    • 1 can refried black beans
    • 2 cups vegetable broth
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 medium onion, chopped
    • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
    • 1 tablespoon chopped chipotle in adobo sauce
    • 1 tablespoon dried epazote (aka Mexican tea), chopped
    • 1 avocado
    • ½ cup refrigerated fresh salsa
    • ¼ cup sour cream or plain yogurt
    • fresh cilantro
    • kosher salt
    • pepper

    Directions:
    Heat the oil in a large stock pot over medium heat. Add the onion and green pepper, season with ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper and cook, covered, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Stir in the chipotle and adobo.

    Stir in the beans, refried beans, epazote, and vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20-30 minutes.

    Divide the soup into bowls, and top with the avocado, salsa, sour cream, and cilantro, if desired.
