3 Ingredient Black Bean Soup

By Rebecca Spoolstra, our Recipe Contributor

With only three ingredients, this soup is quick and simple to make without sacrificing flavor. Add all of your favorite toppings and serve as a main course or in addition to your full on fiesta!



▪   2 cans black beans (15.5 oz cans)

▪   1 can diced tomatoes with green chiles (10 oz can)

▪   1 cup chicken broth



1. Combine all three ingredients in a medium pot and mix together. Bring it to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes.

2. Remove the pot from the stove and blend the soup until it’s smooth using an immersion blender (preferred) or in a regular blender. Serve while hot and top with your favorite garnishes.


This recipe makes about 4-6 servings.

You can easily make this a vegetarian meal by using vegetable broth versus chicken broth.

If using a regular blender, please be extra careful and make sure to hold the lid down very tightly, otherwise it’ll pop off and you’ll be stuck with a mess and possible burns.

Make this soup more of a meal with some crusty bread or tortilla chips for dipping. Or my personal preference, a side of avocado on toast. You can top it with sour cream, shredded cheese, tomatoes, jalapeños, or whatever your heart desires.
