Black bean & Pork {Slow cooker Soup}

Happy Saturday!

This week the weather has been beautiful!  I welcomed back cooler evenings with this classic Black bean soup – slow cooked with pork, chipotle peppers & onions.

If you don’t have chipotle peppers on hand, I recommend it!  I use them a lot for flavoring beans or chili.  My husband loves to use the sauce as a condiment, too.  You probably will never use a full can for one recipe.  I use what is needed, then store the rest in a glass jar in the fridge (old spice jar or jam jar will work perfectly!).

Enjoy!

Black Bean + Pork Slowcooker Soup

6C chicken broth
1 red onion, chopped
1lb dried black beans (rinsed)
4 cloves of garlic, minsed
1 tbsp chopped chipotle chiles + 2 tbsp of the chipotle sauce
2 tsp ground cumin
1.5lb pork shoulder (boneless)
kosher salt

for serving : sour cream, avocado, cilantro, red onion

Add all ingredients to slow cooker.  Cook on low for 8 hours (6 on high).
Remove pork and shred.
Using an immersion blender, puree beans until you reach deserved consistency.
Add shredded pork.
Top with sour cream, red onion, avocado & cilantro.

Bonus : Before pureeing the soup, I save around a cup of the beans and use them for Pork quesadillas for another night’s dinner!
