Black Bean Soup

With the beginning of a new year, we are making some attempts to eat healthier and have less red meat.  I am planning a lot of yummy meals for my family and am looking forward to trying new recipes!  The kids and I spent a week in California for part of the kid’s school break, and came back to some chilly weather in Arizona.  Soup sounded perfect! As I have mentioned before, my husband doesn’t consider soup a meal, but Black Bean Soup is definitely a meal and he agreed!  I was so excited when I found this recipe at Or So She Says!  Black Bean Soup has an amazing combination of flavors, a great amount of spice, is super filling, and is easy to make.  My parents are here visiting and we all really enjoyed this tasty and hearty soup!  I am glad I chose to use ground turkey in the soup, as well as black beans with jalapenos!  We love spicy food, but if you like a little less spice, you could use black beans without the jalapenos.  The addition of all the toppings made Black Bean Soup extra yummy! I am glad there is a small container left in the refrigerator for a healthy and delicious lunch tomorrow!
