A versatile side or main course, black bean soup is a classic dish from Cuba that is enjoyed throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. Black bean soup recipes allow for great versatility as a soup that stands alone or poured over rice for an elegant and unexpectedly flavorful main course. Our GOYA® Cuban Black Bean Soup packs a delicious, seasoned bite that won't overwhelm the satisfying texture of our naturally low-fat beans.

  • Heat oil in medium saucepan over medium heat. Add cumin, garlic, oregano and Sazon to pot. Cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add wine; bring to a boil. Add 1 cup water, beans, bay leaves, brown sugar and vinegar; bring bean mixture to a boil. Reduce to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until mixture thickens and ingredients come together, about 15 minutes. Season soup with Adobo; discard bay leaf.

  • Divide soup evenly among serving bowls. Garnish with onions and cilantro, if desired.

Cooking Tip from LA COCINA GOYA

Tastier bean soup: If your soup has a good consistency, but the beans haven't fully absorbed the flavors of the herbs and spices, try this: Turn off the heat and let the soup sit, covered, 10-15 minutes more. This hot environment will encourage the seasonings to penetrate the beans, without allowing any liquid to evaporate, so your soup will look as good as it tastes!

Yummy! Made this last night was very easy to prepare and not time-consuming which I like. A very healthy recipe even though it is incredibly filling. Would also be good with shredded chicken. Read More

I chose to puree the soup for a smooth consistency and we loved it. I also added a bit of spice with some chipotles in adobo. Read More

Love this recipe - crowd favorite! I triple recipe and use canned black beans. I add onions and cilantro to the oil wine oregano sazon. After letting beans cook awhile I add cayenne pepper and smoked paprika. Then 2 long links of either pork kielbasa or turkey kielbasa (healthier option). Top with Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese more smoked paprika and sprig of fresh cilantro. Serve or top with spicy blue corn chips. This is a heartier version but feeds a crowd! Read More

I used dried black beans using the quick soak method. After draining the beans I added a couple cups of water and followed the rest of the instructions. I simmered (to soften the beans) and added a can of diced tomatoes with chilies. I also substituted a red onion instead of using yellow (just because I love red onions. I loved the bean soup with the tomatoes. I mixed some of it with rice later on for a side dish...so good! Read More
