LuAnn's Spicy Black Bean Soup

Rather than purchasing ready-made Spicy Black Soup, I make my own. Doing so takes less time than driving to the store and back. Honest!

  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, undrained
  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 cup water (use the tomato sauce can for a measuring cup)
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons adobo sauce (from a can of chipotle chiles in adobo sauce)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Pinch dried oregano


  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a blender container; cover and blend for 1 to 2 minutes, or until completely smooth.
  2. Use in other recipes or pour into a saucepan and stir over medium heat until hot before serving.
