Spicy Pinto Bean Soup
I used a 1/2 bag of beans (about 1.5 cups, 3 tablespoons of picante sauce, 1 packet of taco seasoning mix, and garlic pepper to taste, then garnished with cheese).
1. Boil the pinto beans in a crockpot or stove top; I selected the crockpot on high for a few hours. (not pictured). After an hour, mix the picante sauce and taco packet, allow an additional time to simmer on warm.
2. Pour the finished contents into a blender. Blend to desired consistency.
Because beans are hearty, I did not add a side dish. The single bowl was deliciously filling and the perfect protein meal.
There were about four servings out of this recipe.
