Black Bean Soup

This looks yummy. Had Taco Soup instead of this one, but it was a close second.

1 onion, chopped
1 carrot, grated
2 tbls vegetable oil
3 (15oz) cans black beans
3-4 cups chicken broth
1 cup salsa
1 (11oz) can Rotel
1 tbls cumin
1 tbls chili powder
juice of 1 lime
Chopped fresh cilantro to taste

Saute the onion and carrot in oil in large saucepan for 10-15 min or until tender. Process 1 can of undrained beans with 1 cup of broth in a blender until pureed. Add the puree to the onion mixture and mix well. Process another can of undrained beans and another cup of the broth in the blender until pureed and add to the onion mixture.

Stir the remaining can of undrained beans, remaning broth, salsa, undrained tomatoes, cumin and chili powder into the bean puree. Bring to a boil; reduce the heat. Simmer 20 min, stirring occasionally. Stir in lime juice and cilantro. Ladle into soup bowls and garnish with sour cream and chopped green onion tops.
Serves 6-8
