Super Fast Delish Cuban Black Bean Soup

Convenience foods like these make a great dinner!

Some recipes are not worth the time. Black Bean Soup made from dried black beans is one of them. My Super Fast Delish Dish takes fifteen minutes and you’re done! To limit the carbs and add fiber, serve with brown rice which I keep ready to serve in the frig. We eat brown rice at least once a week and always make extra for lunch and another dinner. This soup reminds me of a long ago visit to Puerto Rico where Cuban Black Bean Soup was everywhere.

In a medium saucepan saute until slightly tender:

1 green or red bell pepper, chopped

Add:

1 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon Mexican oregano

Saute and stir 1 minute.

Add:

1 15-ounce can Seasoned Black Beans (such as El Ebro brand or Kroger brand)

1 14.5-ounce can Fire Roasted Tomatoes, Diced Salsa Style (Kroger brand or any Hispanic style seasoned diced tomatoes)

Simmer 5 minutes.

Serve with brown rice. At the table add 1 tablespoon plain Greek yogurt and a splash of red wine vinegar to each serving.
