Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup Recipe

Life has a way of changing us. As we move through various seasons of triumphs and sorrows, personal development buries its roots in some of the most unassuming aspects of our lives.

For instance, when I was a young cook, I would spend countless hours creating ultra chefy meals. I didn’t realize it at the time, but I needed to excel, so desperately, that I strived to make sure my dish was always the most elaborate, well-plated, and unusual at the table. This was a fun time of creative growth and learning. Yet my need for success, even on the dinner table, was deeply rooted in a desire for approval.

Jump forward a couple decades… My cooking knowledge has grown profoundly, yet I find myself making simple dishes most of the time, without a lot of glitz or glamour.

Why? As I grew in knowledge and experience, I no longer felt the need to prove myself to anybody. Fear of judgement no longer controls me.

I find this to be true in many areas of my life: Marriage. Parenting. Business.

Time, experience, and a few hard-fought battles tear down insecurities and expose a bloom of confidence. Confidence is beautiful, don’t you think?

Easy Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup Recipe

So today I’m confidently sharing an easy Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup Recipe that I know you will love!

Admittedly, this black bean soup is low on visual appeal. After all, there are very few attractive brown foods out there.

However, this humble bowl of soup makes a perfect low-maintenance meal for winter months. Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup Recipe is packed with veggies, herbs and spices, then pureed into a rich porridge.

The secret ingredient that makes this black bean soup recipe a stand-out is Frank’s RedHot Sauce. This classic cayenne pepper sauce mingles into the soup, giving it spicy depth, without overpowering the other flavors.

    Just made black bean soup last night and it was great. Can’t wait to give this slow cooker version a try especially on busy school nights. I would think this would freeze well once cooked, yes?

    This soup looks so yummy! I love that it is easy but doesn’t take any shortcuts and uses dried beans. Can’t wait to try it!

    Hi Sommer. Thanks for the great recipe. We are stormed in- and I am out of dried black beans. I made this with 5 (19oz) cans of rinsed black beans, 3 cups of water, and the rest of the recipe as written. It is great! The nutrition, and flavour is probably even better using dried, so next time! Thanks again. I am looking forward to making your Lo mein next!

    Thanks for the inspiration. In Germany (where I live) glutenfree dishes are not very well known.

    This was delicious!! There’s a restaurant we like that makes a black bean soup that is very similar to this, then they top with sour cream, diced tomatoes, and crispy tortilla strips so that’s what we did and we loved it! Plus, I calculated that the whole crock pot only cost about $6, that’s the price of one bowl at that restaurant haha. Thanks!

    Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup Recipe
    Thanks for such a delicious idea! I am trying this recipe and I had a question. My slow cooker only has low or high and warm. I planned on letting it cook all day (10-12 hours)  but I don’t know what temp to cook at. Please help! :)

    • Sommerposted January 22, 2017 at 9:39 pm Reply

      Definitely go with low if you want to cook it all day. Happy Cooking!
