For the Black Bean Soup Recipe:

  • 1 pound dried black beans rinsed
  • 1 large onion peeled and diced
  • 2 medium red bell peppers seeded and diced
  • 2 quarts vegetable broth
  • 1/3 cup Franks Cayenne Hot Sauce
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • Salt and pepper

Possible Toppings:

  • Chopped scallions
  • Cilantro
  • Jalapeno slices
  • Shredded cheese
  • Lime wedges
  • Sour cream or plain yogurt


  • Place all the ingredients in a large slow cooker and season with 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper. Turn the slow cooker on medium, cover, and cook for 10-12 hours. (You could soak the beans in water overnight to reduce the cooking time by half, but it's not necessary.)
  • Once the beans are tender, remove the bay leaves. Use an immersion blender to blend the soup until two-thirds of the beans are pureed and the soup is thick. Salt and pepper to taste, then serve warm with fresh toppings.


Slow cookers vary in temperature. I have three and they all take different amounts of time to cook the same recipe. If your crockpot tends to be really low heat, turn your slow cooker on high to make sure the beans are tender.
