Health Highlights


2 tbsp Coconut oil
1 medium Yellow onion (finely chopped)
2 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
1 medium pepper(s) Jalapeno pepper (seeded, minced)
1 1/2 tsp Chili powder
1 1/4 tsp Cumin
1 dash Oregano, dried
454 gm Black beans, canned
3 cup Chicken broth (stock)
1/2 leaf Bay leaf
1/2 avocado(s) Avocado (for garnish)


Melt fat in a large soup pot and sauté onion, garlic, and jalapeño with spices until onion starts to brown. Add beans, water, and bay leaf to the pot. Cover, and simmer stirring occasionally, until soup thickens slightly, approximately 15 minutes.

To make a thicker soup, puree about 2 cups of soup in a blender (be careful when blending hot liquid). Return to the rest of the soup and stir until heated through. Toss out bay leaf and add more salt, if desired.

Garnish with guacamole or fresh avocado.
