What You'll Need

  • 1 large onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 packet Goya seasoning (Sazón Goya with coriander and annatto) (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons cup olive oil
  • 2 (14.5 ounces) cans black beans, undrained
  • 1.5 cups beef or chicken broth
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • sour cream for serving

How to Make It

  1. In a large saucepan, sauté the onions and garlic with the cumin (and sazon Goya, if using) in the olive oil until golden, fragrant, and soft, about 10 minutes.
  2. While the onions are cooking, puree the beans in a blender with chicken broth to desired consistency.
  3. When the onions are ready, add them to the bean and chicken broth mixture and purée briefly once more.
  4. Stir in lime juice. Taste for seasoning, and season with salt and pepper.
  1. Return the bean mixture to the saucepan and bring to a low simmer. Simmer for 5-15 minutes, or until heated through. Simmer slightly longer if you prefer a thicker soup.
  2. Check seasoning, garnish with sour cream, and serve.
