I told my reluctant family that a new recipe for Black Bean Soup was for dinner – no response. I told my reluctant family that the new recipe was Tequila Black Bean Soup – heads snapped around and eyes lit up.  Hmm, I’m going to have to think on that.

Now I’ve done it.  I just spiked the soup. What can I say? It just seemed like the right thing to do.

This bold soup recipe uses chipotle pepper puree to give it some awesome spiciness. It’s easy to make your own using inexpensive canned chiptole peppers in adobo sauce. You’ll even have some left over to spice up your other recipes.

How To Make Easy Chipotle Puree

Buy the smallest can you can find of the peppers and sauce because a little goes a long way! Use it to add zesty flavor to spice up plain mayonnaise, and add heat to sauces and salad dressings.

  1. Add can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce to food processor. Pulse a few times until smooth.
  2. Store leftovers in an airtight container in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium red pepper, diced
  • 1 medium green pepper, diced
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 medium jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced
  • 2 tsp chipotle puree, –  see note below or chipotle sauce
  • 1/4 cup Tequila
  • 1 pound black beans, dry, do not soak
  • 8 cups vegetable stock
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp ground pepper
  • *optional for serving -tortilla strips, shredded cheese, cilantro and lime wedges

INSTRUCTIONS

  • In a large pot, heat olive oil until shimmering. Add the red and green peppers and onions and cook, stirring until vegetables are softened, not browned, about 5 – 7 minutes. Add garlic and jalapeno and cook until jalapeno is just softened, about 2 minutes.
  • Puree the chipotle peppers and adobo sauce in a blender or processor until smooth.
  • Push vegetables to the side of the pot and add 2 tsp of chipotle puree into the center. Fry for 1 minutes, then stir together with the vegetables. Add the Tequila and reduce slightly, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Add dry beans, stock, oregano, cumin, paprika, salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Over medium high heat, bring to a boil. Let boil 10-15 minutes, then reduce heat to simmer and cook until the beans are just softened, 1-2 hours. Add hot water as needed during cooking to keep the soup liquid.
  • If soup is too thin, remove a small amount and use an immersion blender or processor to puree. Add the puree back into the pot. Repeat as needed until desired thickness.

NOTES

NOTE – To make Chipotle puree – add 7 ounce can Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce to food processor. Process until smooth. Store leftovers in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
Note – additional toppings for serving are sour cream, chives, avacado slices and crushed tortilla chips.
