Why I Love This Recipe

This warm, hearty soup is full of bright flavors and perfect to serve year round. You can customize the level of spiciness with the type of salsa you choose, or by adding jalapenos, chipotle, or cayenne pepper. As written, this is suitable for vegetarians or vegans.

32 ounces dried black beans, cooked, or 8 cans black beans
2 yellow onions, diced
Juice and zest from 4 limes or 1/2 cup lime juice
2 jars prepared salsa
64 ounces vegetable broth
4 cans diced tomatoes
1 bag of frozen corn, or 2 cans corn kernels

Juice and zest from 6 limes or 3/4 cup lime juice
3 1/2 jars prepared salsa
106 ounces vegetable broth
7 cans diced tomatoes
2 1/2bag of frozen corn, or 3 cans corn kernels

Instructions for 30 servings:
Prepare dried black beans, if using, in pressure cooker like an Instant Pot. When beans are soft, rinse beans under running water. If using canned beans, rinse under running water.

Line 2 large crock pots with plastic liner

Combine all ingredients, dividing between the 2 crock pots. Stir well.

For a creamy texture, puree part of the soup in a blender or food processor and return to the pot.

Heat on Low for at least 2 hours, but the flavors will meld when cooked longer.

Pairs Well With

Crusty bread and a green salad with fresh tomato, corn, peppers, and tortilla strips. Garnish with lime, cilantro, and optional hot sauce.
