Easy Dinners for Homeschool Families: Instant Black Bean Soup!

This recipe has been in our family for years, and it's probably one of the easiest on the books:

Instant Black Bean Soup

We make several changes. The original recipe is great, but we find it far too watery (we reduce the broth by half), and we add an onion for flavor. Here is our version:

Instant Black Bean Soup

1 onion, chopped
2 cans black beans, undrained
1/2 cup jarred salsa
2-3 tsp. chili powder (less when there are children eating)
1 cup chicken broth (we found that 2 cups was too much)

Saute onion. Add black beans; mash partially. Add all other ingredients and heat. Serve.

Serve with: Sour cream, cheese, green onions, chips.

Good addition: Cumin!

One recipe feeds two adults and three young children - for larger families (or to have leftovers!) double or triple (or more!).
