Spicy Black Bean Soup

TheMan takes a turn at sniffering out cool recipes so I can post them. The original recipe is here and if you clicky more you will see how TheMan was inspired.

2 x 14 oz cans black beans
1 tsp salt
3 small cloves garlic, chopped
1 tsp pepper
1 1/2 tsp thyme
1 1/2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1 cube chicken bouillon
1/2 cup carrots, chopped
1/2 onion, minced
1 stalk celery, diced
1/2 green pepper, minced
1/2 cup dry red wine
2 turkey bratwurst, chopped
1 1/2 cups water (1 bean-can’s worth)

Add all ingredients to slow-cooker and cook 8-10 hours on low.

1. The original recipe was for a ginormous stock pot which TheMan discovered as he was puttering about with the ingredients. Our stock pot is not so huge. The original recipe calls for 4 cups of water, 4 cans of beans and more stuff which…after 4 cups of water anything else would have cause a crockpot tsunami. Well, maybe it’s not that small but he did have to do some jiggering to make sure we didn’t have crock pot disaster.

2. TheMan says, “This recipe has red wine and black beans, if you spill it on your good linens there is nothing in the world that will get the stain out.” I wore black so all was good!

3. This smells fantastic and is just as tasty. Mmmmm.

2005: Have you ever tried to spell Good King What’s-his-face’s name? Oi! I can’t even say it correctly (comes out Whenshelsauce) much less spell it.

2004: Hee, Bob Newhart: Badass! That cracked my shit right the hell up, folks.

2003: They had best keep things like that because if Starbuck and Apollo jump in the sack, my brain is going to just outright pop.

    That sounds awesome. If we have another soup exchange (and I hope we do!), that would be a great contribution ๐Ÿ™‚
    PS: for some ungodly reason, I can’t post on your blog when I’m at home so I must wait until my prep hour at school
