Spicy Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup

It’s a rainy Sunday, and that had me hankering to get out the slow cooker. This Spicy Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup – Allrecipes fit the bill nicely. With a few modifications, it’s currently simmering away on high, to be enjoyed this evening:


  • Instead of garlic powder, used 5 cloves minced garlic
  • Chopped 1/2 onion
  • 1 Tbsp. tomato paste
  • 1 Tbsp. marinara sauce
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice (helps keep the bean skins intact)
  • A bit more chili powder and cumin than called for
  • 1 tsp. chili flakes
  • Half beef stock, half chicken stock
  • 1 Tbsp. homemade roasted tomatillo salsa
