I have been a little soup crazy this winter. Perhaps the most soup ever produced in my kitchen is directly proportional to the most snow ever fallen in Chicago in a single winter. (well, maybe not ever but this has to be close!) This black bean soup is actually one of my husband’s specialties. He loves chorizo and any excuse to buy it and eat it.

This soup freezes well so you might want to make a double batch! Add a spicy pepper to fire the soup up even more, try different garnishes, serve with tortilla chips and guacamole or use leftovers to top nachos.

You know those Fridays when you just couldn’t be happier that it is weekend?! Ahhh… I’m having one of those. Happy weekend everyone…

Black Bean and Chorizo Soup
3 cups dried black beans
1 3/4 lb. chorizo sausage
1 T olive oil
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 yellow onions, finely chopped
2 celery stalks, finely chopped
2 1/2 qt beef stock
4 T finely chopped parsley
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried ground cumin
2 bay leaves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sour cream
2 T finely chopped fresh chives
2 T finely chopped fresh cilantro

Remove casings from the sausages. In a large sauce pan, warm the oil over medium hbeat. Add the sausage meet and brown, breaking up the meat. Pour off all but about 3 tablespoons of the fat. Return the pan to the heat and add onion, garlic and celery and saute until onions are translucent (2-3minutes).

Rinse the beans. Put them in the pan with the meat and add stock with parsley, oregano, cumin and bay leaves and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer gently until the beans are very tender (2-3 hours). Add water as necessary to keep the beans moist.

Discard the bay leaves. Pour a few ladels full into a blender and blend until smooth and then return to pan. OR, use an immersion blender in the pan, pulsing a until you have pureed some of the beans. Add the salt to taste and adjust other seasonings as needed.

Garnish with sour cream, chives and cilantro.

    [...] So I was planning the first post for this my new blog for today – the day after Valentines Day; to avoid the mushy, pink, red and sweet smelling stuff that was flying around. On an ordinary day I am a very big fan of holidays and celebrations, but Valentines Day I’ve never been into. It probably has stemmed for spending a majority of them single and even though I am now married I still don’t find the day particularly important. Everything becomes overpriced and alot of the time it is bought at the last minute. Where’s the romance in that? Last night Aaron and I went out for dinner – I guess you could say it was for Valentine’s Day, but really, any excuse will do to go out for <a href=””>Jamaican!</a&gt; On the way home we passed a 24 hr florist and the line of of men inside was ridiculous! So I woke up this morning with a terrible sore throat and runny nose. Cold symptoms 101. And to tell you the truth i don’t really get that upset by getting (a little bit) sick. I love, staying home from work. It has made me crave “sick” food though, and on my list right now is Whipped Blogs’s <a href=””>Black Bean and Chorizo Soup</a>. Maybe I’ll put that on Aaron’s next dinner list. The trade of to staying home though unfortunately means cleaning the house. Which I’m about to start doing … any minute now. [...]

    able to resolve this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share.
    Thank you!

    Hey just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think
    its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same results.
