You will need:
1 package Chipotle Lime Black Bean Soup
2 tbs. olive oil
1 cup diced onion
1 cup diced green bell pepper
2 cloves garlic
8 oz. diced smoked sausage
Rinse and sort through the beans. Pour beans into a large bowl or pot and cover with 2 inches of warm water. Allow beans to soak over night, or at least 4 hours. Drain and discard water.
Add olive oil to a large soup pot over medium-high heat. Sauté the onion, pepper, garlic, and sausage for 5-6 minutes until onion becomes translucent and sausage begins to brown.
Add 7 cups of water and rinsed beans. Turn the heat to high and bring mixture to a rolling boil. Stir periodically.
Reduce the heat to low and cover the pot. Simmer (covered) for 60 minutes.
Uncover and check beans for doneness. Continue to simmer for 15 minutes.
When fully tender, add contents of seasoning packet.
Simmer for additional 10 minutes before serving.
For thicker consistency, use 5-6 cups of water or stock (step #3)
Tastes great with ground beef or chicken too!
Serve over long-grain rice for an authentic Caribbean-style dish
