2-3 tsp. spices (oregano, cilantro, paprika, thyme, cumin, chili powder, cayenne, salt and pepper, or whatever you want)
Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat, and add in the onion, pepper, and jalepeno. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
Add in the garlic, spices, and bay leaf and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
Add in 2 cups of black beans and mash into the spice and vegetable mixture.
Add in the remaining beans and vegetable broth, bring to a boil, then simmer for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Fish out the bay leaf before serving.
I’ve read a lot of recipes for black bean soup that call for mixing the black beans with the stock in a blender, but I like my black bean soup kind of chunky, so mashing it up helps get the hearty taste I like, plus it melds well with the spices this way. If you do prefer a smoother soup then simply blend everything together at step 3 instead of mashing. Tastes great on its own, but you could also serve with rice or garnish with avocado and tomato.
