Spicy black bean soup is a quick and easy recipe that will help warm you up on a cold day. The spices in this dish are simple, yet give this soup a great, flavorful taste that would pair well with a side of chips and roasted tomato salsa.

The key step to getting a rich, creamy texture with this soup is to blend it just before serving. A high powered blender, like a refurbished Vitamix blender is a great tool to have in the kitchen for tasks like this because they can blend up to 64 ounces of soup in one batch.


  • Black beans – 4 cups
  • Diced tomatoes – 2 cups
  • Vegetable stock – 2 cups
  • Chopped onions – 1 cup
  • Jalapeno – 1
  • Garlic, minced – 1 clove
  • Cumin – 2 tsp
  • Red pepper flakes – 1 tsp
  • Cilantro – 1 bunch
  • Sour cream – For garnish


  1. In a large pot, combine 3 cups of the black beans with 1 cups of the diced tomatoes and the vegetable stock.
  2. Heat over medium heat until it begins to simmer.
  3. Add the jalapeno, onions, garlic, red pepper flakes and cumin.
  4. Continue to simmer to allow the flavors to combine for about 5 minutes.
  5. Remove from the heat and transfer to a blender, working in batches if necessary.
  6. Blend on low for about 30-45 seconds to roughly combine mixture.
  7. Return the blended mixture to the pot and add the remaining tomatoes and beans.
