I have a few loves in food. I love dips with cream cheese and I love soups. Each weekend, I try and make something that I can take for lunches during the week. Lately, I have been making a new soup each week. I have a tendency to have a working lunch which is me eating and walking at the same time. Sometimes, I am walking building to building and am outside talking to people. Soup is something I can heat up and take with me and eat on the go.
This week I made Black Bean Nacho Soup. This soup has the cheesy flavor with an added slightly spicy kick. The green chiles add this flavor. If you want more of a “kick”, add in some chopped jalapenos to the soup .
If you want to keep this vegetarian, use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth.

This recipe is easy to customize to your taste. If you prefer a thicker soup, you can mash some of the black beans with a potato masher or fork before adding them to the pot. This will help to thicken the soup and add some additional texture. You can also use canned black bean soup instead of black beans and diced tomatoes for a shortcut version of this recipe.
Overall, Black Bean Nacho Soup is a delicious and satisfying meal that is sure to become a new family favorite.
