Spicy Black Bean soup

This is from Everyday Food but could not find it on the website yet. It is good, and I would serve with other Mexican type dishes but not as the main dish Harrison LOVED it.

1 pound dried black beans, soaked overnight and drained
1 large onion diced
2 jalapenos, minced
1 TBS olive oil
4 garlic cloves minced
salt and pepper to taste
2 teaspoons ground cumin

1. in saucepan cover all ingredients, cover with water bring to a boil then reduce and simmer for 50 mins. (I sauteed the onion, garlic, and peppers a few mins before adding beans and water)

2. add 2 cups broth ( i used chicken broth)
1 TBS cornstarch
2 TBS lime juice

3. cook about 20 mins. then puree 2 cups of soup in blender and return to soup.

I served with sour cream and tortilla strips but avocados and fresh onion would be great

I'll have to look for dry black beans at the store. Matt loves black beans! I think it would be a hit at our house!
