Ingredients
  • Soup:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 (4-ounce) dry-cured chorizo sausage, chopped
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 jalapeno, seeded and diced
  • 3 (15-ounce) cans black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 canned chipotle chile plus 1 tablespoon adobo sauce
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • Sliced green onions, for serving
  • Cumin Lime Sour Cream:
  • 1/2 cup lowfat sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Juice of 1/2 a lime
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Directions

For the soup: Heat the olive oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the chorizo, onions, garlic and jalapeno and saute until tender, about 4 minutes. Add the black beans, chipotle pepper, adobo sauce and broth and simmer for 25 minutes so all the flavors can marry together.

Blend half of the soup, using either a blender or an immersion blender, leaving some whole beans for texture.

For the sour cream: Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.

Taste for seasoning and plate topped with cumin lime sour cream and sliced green onions.
