Recipe

The smoky heat of the chipotles adds a spark to the hearty goodness of black beans. Pumpkin or any winter squash is a wonderful complement to black beans. I make spicy black bean soup and butternut squash soup and purée each separately. To serve, I pour them simultaneously into each bowl. This one soup captures these twin flavors quickly and easily.

Yield: 2 large or 4 small servings
Cooking time: 20 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 15-ounce can black beans, undrained
  • 1 14½-ounce can chicken broth, preferably low sodium
  • 1 cup onion, chopped (1 large onion)
  • 1 dried chipotle chile, reconstituted and minced
  • 1 15-ounce can pumpkin
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • Salt (optional)
  • Optional garnishes: 2 tablespoons sour cream, 1 lime cut into wedges

Directions

In a heavy, 3-quart saucepan, combine the beans, broth, onion, chile, and pumpkin; bring to a simmer and cook for about 10 minutes, or until the onion softens.

Transfer the mixture to a blender or food processor and whirl until A thick and smooth. Return to the pan and add 1 teaspoon of the cumin; taste to determine if you desire the remaining cumin or salt.

Serve in bowls. If desired, garnish with a squeeze of lime, a dollop of sour cream, and a sprig of cilantro.
