Spicy Bean Soup

Spicy Bean Soup

2 lbs red beans
2 onions, chopped
3-4 cloves of garlic
1 green pepper, chopped
olive oil
2 cans Rotel
2 T salt or to taste
4 T chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin (optional)
Saute onion, garlic. and green pepper in small amount of olive oil.
Add beans and enough water to cover 3-4 inches (more if you like a lot of broth). Do not add salt or tomatoes at this time. These ingredients will prevent the beans from softening.
Bring to a boil and simmer around 3 hours, or until the beans are soft. After the beans are soft enough for your taste, add the Rotel; I use the store brand. Add the chili powder and salt also to taste. Sometimes I'll add a little cumin or taco seasoning.
We like this with cornbread, or homemade bread and butter. You could also eat it with tortilla or corn chips.
I hope you enjoy it!

Happy at Home
