This is on of the recipes I made for my dinner party last weekend. I thought it turned out pretty well, but I was a little heavy on the garlic. I’ve corrected that in the recipe below.
You could also make a flavored sour cream by mixing in salsa verde or even a single spice like chipotle powder.
Slow Cooker Citrus Black Bean Soup
- 1 lb dried black beans (or use canned and skip overnight cooking)
- 1 15 oz canned tomato puree or diced tomatoes (roasted if you can find them)
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 Tb. Jerk Seasoning
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp chipotle powder or other chili powder
- 1 Tb. Liquid Smoke
- 1 tsp garlic Tabasco
- 1 lime juiced
- 1 orange juiced
- 1 Tb cilantro, chopped
The night before you want to eat the soup, put the dried beans in the slow cooker and add water until the beans are covered by 3 or 4 inches. Cook on high overnight.
In the morning add the rest of the ingredients and cook on low 5 – 9 hours. Serve with a dollop of sour cream and a few baked tortilla chips.
