Spicy Refried Bean Soup

May 3rd, 2009 | Posted by Alison in Dinner Time

Inspired by Fat Free Vegan’s Smoky Refried Bean Soup

1 Tbsp olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
3 – 4 cloves garlic, minced
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can refried beans
1 can black beans
1 cup frozen corn (pre-cooked, thawed or canned work too)
1 tsp cumin
1 1/2 tsp paprika
1 tsp chili powder
1 c +/- water or veggie broth (add more liquid as needed)
dash of hot sauce
1 tsp cilantro
salt and pepper
(all spices to taste)

Spicy Refried Bean Soup

Saute pepper, onion and garlic in olive oil until soft. Add tomatoes, refried beans and broth/water. Once refried beans have “dissolved” into the liquid, add beans, corn and spices. (Cooked rice is also a nice option here.) Cover and let simmer for 20 – 30 minutes until flavors have blended, stirring occassionally.

Fun to serve with Greek yogurt, salsa or tortilla chips!
