Black Bean Soup

I love this soup so much! I can't wait to make it again! Black bean soup with onion and peppers and corn... I probably should have called it black bean chili. 

This is actually based loosely on a friend's black bean soup recipe. Of course, it had a few ingredients in it that I can't eat. So as usual, I adapted. 

I added a few more veggies and took a few out. And can I just say, this is delicious! Kyle was very complimentary on this soup as well! Since we can't eat normal chili because of tomatoes, this soup helped fill the chili-needing-void in our heart. 

We topped it with cheese and ate it with tortilla chips. It is so hearty and delicious. I actually think I will make this again this week....

So try this soup and let me know what you think!

Much Love,
