It’s the season for scares! And, there’s nothing more scary than hitting the 5 o’clock hour and not knowing what you’ll be serving your little gremlins. Even more terrifying? Having to dole out big-time dollars to take them out to eat. We think that idea should go the way of the ghost! After all, with a few basics in your pantry, you can serve up this absurdly adorable (and delicious!) bowl of soup in a no time at all. One blender, five minutes, and few frightening words and you’ll have a hearty, healthful, filling bowl of Black Bean Soup with fun messages that make mealtime a real treat!
Easy Black Bean Boo Soup
- 1 can black beans, drained
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 cup beef broth
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 tablespoon taco seasoning mix
- 1/4 cup crema mexicana (Mexican table cream or heavy whipping cream)
- salt and pepper to taste
Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend until pureed. Pour into a small skillet and cook until hot. Add more beef broth, if desired, to thin the consistency. Pour into bowls. Place crema mexicana in a plastic, zip-top bag. Snip the corner from the bag and pip Halloween-inspired messages into the soup. Boo! Spooky! Or Scary! are a few fun options! Enjoy!
