A quick black bean soup that is great for a lunch or a quick dinner. Healthy and very easy to make.
In a large saucepan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook for about 5 minutes until the onion is softened. Add chili powder, cumin cayenne pepper, black pepper and chipotle pepper. Cook for about 1 minute, stirring. Add stock and 1 can of beans and bring to a boil.
Meanwhile, in a food processor, (or alternately, you can use a potato masher or even a fork) puree the remaining can of beans and add to pot. Reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Ladle soup into serving bowls and garnish with sour cream and cilantro, if desired.
