Best Bean Soup Ever

So, I have this crazy 2nd cousin named Zeke whom is famous in the family for many things among them that he's raced the legendary Gumball 3000 road rally through Europe and crewed a boat in The America's Cup during the early '80s.  Zeke's a character, you might say and beloved by all.  

He also happens to have created the world's best black bean soup recipe, at least in my book.
Have at it!  Warning - it makes a huge pot, so if you don't plan to eat if for a week or feed a crowd, cut in half:-)  It takes less than 1/2 hour to make - bonus!

Zeke's 20 Minute Black Bean Soup
5 - 15 oz cans Black Beans, drained (can substitute red or kidney beans for some)
5 C. Chicken or Veg. broth
2T. Olive Oil
2 Onions, minced
3-5 cloves Garlic, minced
1T. Cumin
3-5 - 16oz cans Hominy (white or yellow)
1/4 C. Worcestershire
1 1/2 t. Tabasco
1 1/2 t. Salt

OPTIONAL toppings/sides:
Cilantro and or/ Avocado, Sour Cream 
Tortillas, Tortilla Chips or Cornbread
  • Puree 1/2 of your beans and 1 can of Hominy in a blender.  
  • Sauté onion and garlic in the oil until clear.  Add everything but the serving items.
  • Bring to a boil, then simmer a minimum of 10 minutes but no more than 30.  Quicky soup!
  • Serve with toppings of choice
