Any excuse to use the new pot… right?
It was a delicious and hearty soup, easy to make, and healthy to boot. Plus it made good leftovers the next day (ok two). Serve it with some fresh cilantro and some crumpled tortilla chips on top… mmmm.
I really like the refried black beans, but you could definitely use regular refried beans as well.
