Refried Bean Soup

This refried bean soup is a rather interesting combination of flavors. By interesting I mean ‘dang good’. I thought it was great. I admit, I wasn’t sure what to think about it going in. Refried beans, yeah. In a soup? Well, it has a nice Southwestern kick, the perfect consistency and is just all-around yummy. Perfect on a cool fall day. And different.

Refried Bean Soup

Don’t use el cheapo canned re-fried beans when making this soup. You don’t want a cheap tasting soup. Pay the few extra cents and get a premium brand.

If you want to just enjoy some great refried beans and not a soup, follow this recipe but leave out the chicken broth.

Also try my delicious taco soup.
