Yes, my name really is spelled that way.


black bean soup.

Since my viral plague won't go away, I thought maybe some spicy food would just scare it away....  My mom is a big believer in spicy food as a cure all.  I made a quick and easy black bean soup to have with a modern take on heuvos rancheros for dinner last night and lunch (with a shrimp quesadilla) the following day. 
black bean soup.
1/2 red onion, diced
14 oz can of diced green chilis
1/2 jalapeno, minced (partially deseeded, keeping some in for heat)
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
dash cumin
dash chili powder
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup vegetable stock (low sodium)
olive oil
toppings:  sour cream, fresh (in season!) avocado

In a medium pot drizzled with olive oil, saute onions over low-medium heat until translucent.  Add jalapeno and cook another few minutes.  Add green chilis, black beans, stock and spices.  Bring to a boil over high heat and simmer for a couple minutes for the flavors to combine.
