Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat olive oil in a Dutch oven or large saucepan over medium-high heat. Saute celery, carrot, onion, and garlic in hot oil until fragrant, about 5 minutes.

  • Stir black beans, chicken broth, orange juice, cayenne pepper, and chili powder with the vegetables in the pot; bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until the carrots are soft, about 15 minutes.

  • Ladle about half the solids into a blender. Add enough liquid so the solids are completely submerged. Hold lid in place and pulse blender a few times before leaving on to puree. Return pureed mixture to pot and stir.

Cook's Note:

White wine can replace orange juice for a different flavor.

Use vegetable broth in place of chicken broth to make this vegetarian.

I made this soup just as the recipe said. It was way too hot for me and my family. I made a whole other pot but added no hot spices. I then mixed the two soups with a ratio of about 1 part hot to 4 parts plain(no cayenne). This made it far more palatable. I also added a can of tomatoes to the second batch.Will definitely make it again. Read More

This soup was wonderful. I reduced the spice to 1/8 Tsp each because my husband won t eat spicy food and it honestly seemed like a bit much. I think it was just right for us. I loved it and will absolutely be making this regularly. Read More
