Debbie's Black Bean Soup

Original content by Susan Brown

This delicious recipe came to me via my friend Debbie.  She is an accomplished cook & this is just one of many yummy dishes I've enjoyed at her home.  Thanks Debbie!

Debbie's Black Bean Soup
 
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion,diced
1 gr pepper, seeded and divided
2 lg plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
4 cloves garlic,crushed
1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 dries bay leaf
3 cans (19oz. each) black beans, rinsed and drained
5 cups reduced-sodium chicken stock or broth
1 cup frozen whole-kernel corn
1 cup diced smoked ham
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 tsp hot red pepper sauce, or to taste
garnish :  sour cream, cilantro,lime wedges
 
Heat oil in a 5 quart soup pot over medium heat;  add onion, bell pepper and tomatoes
Saute 10 mins or until onions and peppers have softened.  Stir in garlic, oregano, cumin and bay leaf,  then stir in beans and cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly.  Add stock and bring to a boil;  reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer 20 minutes.
 
Using an immersion blender, puree soup until about half of the black beans are pureed ( or if using a regular blender, puree half of the soup)
 
Stir in corn, ham, cilantro and hot pepper sauce.  Cook over medium heat 3-4 mins longer, until corn and ham are heated thru
 
Ladle into bowls.  Garnish with a dollop of sour cream, cilantro sprigs and a squeeze of lime, if desired
 
NOTE :  I used about 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes instead of the hot pepper sauce.

We expect to have very mild weather during the next few days in Maryland. It is a good time to get the fall work done in yards and gardens.
