black bean soup

I have been craving this soup for a couple of weeks now. This weekend I finally had a chance to make it for dinner. It is a perfect winter time meal. Great for dinner and perfect left overs for lunch. It is a quick and easy recipe to make, and oh so good. We had french bread on the side tonight, I also like it with cornbread.

Here’s what you do:
warm a pan and add in the bacon, stirring occasionally until it starts to let go of the fat
add in the onoions, saute until translucent, about 4 minutes
add in the garlic and carrots,
add the toms, katchup, worchestershire sauce, chilli powder beans and broth.
bring to a boil and then turn temp down to a low bubble.
allow to cook for 10-20 minutes
While the soup cooks:
wash and chop the cilantro and green onions
grate the cheese and slice the limes (I like about 1/4 to 1/2 lime in my bowl)
