Black Bean Soup

I made a really yummy dinner tonight and I don't want to forget about it! 

I based it off of a recipe for black bean soup I found on Annie's Eats.  I jazzed it up a little bit and it was delicious!!  The addition of red peppers and onions added a ton of flavor.  And I made a double batch so we can have it for lunch the rest of the week and throw any left overs in the freezer.  I love soup leftovers more than any other leftover.  They are the one thing that I think actually gets better a day or two later.  Odd. 

Black Bean and Red Pepper Soup
1 red pepper, chopped
1 white onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 cans black beans, drained
2 cups salsa
3 cups chicken stock
1 tsp taco seasoning
shredded cheese, green onions, and sour cream to garnish

Throw red pepper, onion, and garlic into a stockpot with some olive oil.  Cook until tender.  Add chicken stock, black beans, salsa, and taco seasoning.  Heat on medium heat for a few minutes.  With immersion blender, blend until smooth.  I heated it for a few more minutes, then topped with some shredded cheese, chopped green onions, and sour cream.  YUMO!!

And I'd love to provide you with a photo to prove how delicious looking this soup is, but I can't.  I don't have the ability to make food appetizing, and I actually think you should try this :)
