This is one of my favorite soups. It's hearty enough to serve as a meal, needing only the addition of a little fat-free sour cream, and some crumbled baked tortilla chips.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 26 minutes

Total Time: 36 minutes


  • 2 tsp canola oil

  • 1 medium carrot, chopped
  • 1/2 large red pepper
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 2 15-ounce cans reduced sodium black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 3 cups fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth
