Black Bean Soup

Here's a concoction that was born out of using up what was in our fridge plus a little of what was in our pantry!

4 Tbsp. butter
1/3 c. onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 c. flour
salt and pepper to taste
1 can chicken broth
1 can corn, drained
1 can black beans, drained
1 c. cooked chicken, cubed
1 c. shredded cheese (I used Mexican Blend)
4 oz. sour cream (about 1/2 c.)
1 c. milk
2 pieces bacon, cooked and crumbled

Melt butter in a sauce pan. Add onion and garlic and saute until onion is tender. Stir in flour until combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Slowly whisk in chicken broth. Stir in corn, beans, chicken and cheese. Add sour cream and milk. Cook until heated through - stir in bacon crumbles and serve! We had ours with grilled cheese on homemade bread - yummy!

Serves 2 adults and 3 children for 2 meals!

How funny that I come across this now. I was just going through my kitchen cabinets, doing my menu planning, and I found a can of black beans. I have no idea when I purchased them, but they're still good, and now I have a good recipe to use them in. Thank you for sharing!
