Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 4 carrots, chopped

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 4 cups chicken broth

  • 3 (15 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained, divided

  • 1 (8.75 ounce) can whole kernel corn

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can stewed tomatoes

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir carrots, onion, and garlic until onion is softened, about 5 minutes. Stir chili powder and cumin into onion mixture; cook and stir until evenly coated, about 2 minutes.

  2. Pour broth over onion mixture and add 1/2 of the black beans, corn, and black pepper. Bring broth mixture to a boil.

  3. Blend tomatoes and remaining 1 1/2 cans black beans together in a food processor or blender until smooth; pour into broth mixture. Reduce heat to low, cover pot, and simmer until carrots are tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
