Black Bean Soup & Spicy Cornbread Muffins

in Dinner, Soups / Stews

Before I started dating CK I essentially refused to eat anything spicy. In the past I’ve honestly gone out to dinner at Mexican restaurants and only ordered margaritas and snacked on corn chips, but now I’m addicted to heat. Essentially this means I tend to double the amount of spice, which is exactly what I did with the chili powder called for in the below soup as well as the chipolte pepper in the cornbread muffins.

I love your new site. 🙂 And I really want to make this. Except I think mild Pace picante sauce is too hot. Do you think the recipe would suck if I just, you know, left out the spicy stuff? 🙂

Hey Jen,

This recipe actually isn’t really spicy at all. The only “hot stuff” is one tablespoon of chili powder (I actually added quite a bit more — because I like it hot). You should be safe to make it as is.

I have been looking for an awesome black bean soup recipe. I’d probably omit the ketchup just b/c I like everything from scratch and low sugar. Maybe I’ll try it.

The site is awesome!
