Black Bean Soup

I recently discovered another food blogger who cooks for one. Please check out her blog where I found this great and simple recipe for one.

This is a simple crock pot meal that you can easily double or triple to make enough for a family.

The ingredients are simple. A can of black beans, drained. 1 can of beef stock. (you can use vegetable stock if you want this to be vegetarian) 3 tbs of pre-made salsa. 1-2 tablespoons of red wine.

Get all the ingredients into a pan on the stove and cook for 15 minutes.

After it has cooked get it into a food processor or blender and puree it. Be careful as you don't want to totally close up hot food in the food processor or blender as it may end up making a giant mess. Puree in batches if you are making a lot.

Once it is pureed you can refrigerate until you are ready to put it in the slow cooker. This is great to make the night before then put in the slow cooker before you leave for work in the morning.

When you are ready, put it in the slow cooker on low for 6-8 hours.

When you are ready to eat, dish it up and garnish with some lime. You can also add some crushed tortilla chips or a dollop of sour cream if you'd like. This was simple and tasty! Thanks to the Well Enough Alone Blog!
