While winter season is approaching I am looking for more soup ideas that are healthy and easy to make. I always loved Mexican food and I cook a lot Mexican inspired dishes. I can honestly say I am not authentic or expert in Mexican food so please don’t judge me:) However, I love it and I make it …period. Importantly, the healthy Mexican soup that I have for you has so many benefits. It includes black beans and we know they are high in protein, they also strengthen the bones and lower blood pressure. Moreover, they are packed with many nutrients and vitamins like iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium and zinc. We should include more black beans in our diet.

How to Make Mexican Soup

Firstly of all, gather all ingredients: oil, onions, garlic, red paprika, tomato paste, corn and black beans. Get also spices that are perfect for this soup: [easyazon_link identifier=”B01KKUH818″ locale=”US” tag=”ilospas-20″]cumin[/easyazon_link], chili powder, sweet paprika,[easyazon_link identifier=”B00IZL255O” locale=”US” tag=”ilospas-20″]Himalayan Salt,[/easyazon_link] and pepper. Secondly, saute diced onions and garlic. Add red paprika, tomato paste, corn and spices. In the end add water and black beans.

Tips to Make Black Bean Soup

  • It is crucial to saute onions alone without garlic because they need longer time to cook than garlic. You don’t want to burn your garlic.
  • Add black beans in the end together with water. You don’t want them to be mushy in this soup.
  • Add more chili powder if you need a stronger kick.
