My first Post

Well I finally followed through and decided to start the food blog that I have been talking about doing forever! Lately I have started cooking a lot more and not going by recipes so the things that have come out well I decided to blog about!
First up is Creamy Black Bean Soup. This was super easy and really delicious! It makes a lot so its something you could make on a Sunday or Monday and have again later in the week! I hope you enjoy!

2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onion diced
2 cloves of garlic minced
3 cans of Bushes Black Beans (drained)
2 cups of chicken broth/stock-whichever you have is fine
1 can of Rotel (I prefer it with the lime juice and cilantro)
1 teaspoon of chili powder
1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon of oregano
1 tablespoon of cumin
1 avocado
sour cream
grated white cheddar

First go ahead and get your garlic and onion chopped. Put it in a skillet with the olive oil. Simmer for about 5-6 minutes.

In a pot put the 3 cans of drained beans, the chicken broth and the rotel. Heat over medium heat for about 15 minutes. Remove from heat.

You will need to blend the beans in batches adding a small amount of the onion and garlic mixture to each.Once all is blended put it back into soup pot and heat on medium for about 5-10 minutes.

Garnish with avocado slices, sour cream and cheese! DELICIOUS! Very healthy with a large amount of protein!

Let me know what you guys think! Feedback is awesome!
