Cuban Black Bean Soup Mix
Like black bean soup? This Cuban black bean soup has a depth of flavor that rivals homemade only a lot easier to make. Add a ham hock to make it even more rich and flavorful or enjoy it as a hearty and delicious vegan soup. Yielding 10 cups of soup, it feeds a family or group of friends and leftovers freeze beautifully.
The pepper on the top is a Nora chili pepper, the mildest of all the peppers and is often used to make smoked sweet paprika. Add this pepper after the beans are cooked and remove it before serving, if you'd like a little more heat chop it up and leave it in the soup.
It's not hot spicy - Cuban food doesn't pack a lot of heat.
