  1. Add oil to a soup pot over medium heat. Sauté onion until soft, about 3-4 minutes. Add in minced garlic and sauté for an additional minute until aromatic.
  2. Add cumin and chili powder, quickly stir to combine for about 30 seconds. This step will bring out the aroma of the spices.
  3. Add in vegetable broth, black beans, tomatoes, green chiles, and salt. Simmer on medium-low heat for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Transfer hot soup to a blender and blend to desired consistency. (See note for safety tips on blending hot foods.)
  5. Add in lime juice. Serve plain or topped with avocado, cilantro and yogurt.
Recipe Notes

If you have dry beans, here is a recipe for cooking them!

Hot liquids can expand and explode when blended in a blender, creating steam pressure from the inside that can blow off the lid, cause burns, and make a mess.

1. Never fill the blender completely full. You will want to blend hot foods in batches if you are making a lot.

2. Create a steam vent by removing the center of the lid and placing a clean kitchen towel over the hole with your hand.

3. Blend away! Here is a video tutorial for step by step visual instructions.
