2. Soup

So, it’s no wonder I’ve been cooking up this Easy Crock-Pot Black Bean Soup recipe so much this fall/winter! 


And now, you can hop on the black-bean-boat, too! 

Easy Crock-Pot Black Bean Soup
Servings: 4

 

 
Ingredients:
1 can (15.5 oz) black beans
2 cups vegetable broth 
1 tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. oregano 
½ tbsp. cumin powder
½ medium onion (chopped)
1 jalapeno 
1 lime

 

 

 


Directions: 
1. Drain and rinse black beans, pour into Crock-Pot


2. Add chopped onion, chili powder, oregano, cumin and vegetable broth


3. Stir well!


4. Cook on high for 4-5 hours or low for 6-7 hours


5. Check to make sure the beans are soft, then slowly add a ladle-ful of the bean mixture to a blender and blend until smooth and creamy.

*Note: An immersion blender works very well for this as well!
**Note: If using a blender such as a Ninja or Nutribullet with a plastic container, scoop out desired amount and let cool a little bit before putting into the container and blending! Make sure to never blend hot liquids as they can build pressure in the blender and explode, causing severe burns.


6. Pour back in and repeat until reaching desired amount of whole beans to blended beans. 


7. Mix together blended and whole beans and scoop into bowls, squeeze some lime over bowls of soup


8. Top with sour cream, sliced jalapenos, and slurp up! 


*Optional: Top with shredded cheese, top with plain Greek yogurt, top with mix of plain Greek yogurt and sour cream, top with cilantro, top with sliced avocado, add in shredded chicken (I usually cook up chicken in various Mexican spices, shred, and add on a bowl-bowl basis!)

MARIA'S FITNESS TIPS

#1 

Set goals! Set both long and short-range goals to keep yourself motivated. Be sure that the short-range goals will eventually lead you to your big-picture, long-range ones. Consider them stepping stones on the path towards something bigger.

 

#2

Do what you like to do. Don't just start doing something because everyone else is; find what you truly enjoy and do that. In the end, if you don't have a genuine interest in your workouts and lifestyle, you're going to hinder your progress.

 

#3

Switch things up! I know this may sound kind of funny after just reading #2, but as humans, we can get bored of doing the same thing over and over. As well, our muscles can get "bored" and we can plateau. Do not be afraid to try new things and incorporate change to keep you entertained and your muscles guessing!
