Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Let me start off by saying that I love soup! I love it especially in the winter. It is usually something that I order when out to eat. I have so many soup recipes that are excellent but usually take lots of time with the chopping and simmering. This recipe is one of my favorites. It is simple to make, healthy and delicious. What more could you ask for? I found this recipe over at Annie's Eats and have made it many times when I am rushed to get dinner on table. I did make just a few changes to her original. I always have the ingredients on hand.

Black Bean & Salsa Soup
2 cans of black beans, drained & rinsed
1 1/2 cups vegetable broth (I usually just you chicken though)
1 cup salsa
1 tsp. cumin
sour cream, shredded cheese, green onion for garnishing

Combine beans, broth, salsa & cumin in a saucepan over medium high heat until simmering. Ladle 3/4 of the mixture into a blender and blend until smooth. Pour back into the saucepan with the other 1/4 of mixture and mix to combine. Serve with garnished if desired.
Just a note: I would double this if feeding more than 4 people. Also, if you have an immersion blender that would work great for this recipe.
