Spicy Black Bean Soup Mix

  • Author: Cassie Johnston


This is such an awesome, hearty soup that’s packed with Southwestern flavors. I love it topped with sour cream and avocado.



  • 1 1/2 cup black beans
  • 1 tablespoon dried onion
  • 1 tablespoon dried garlic
  • 2 tablespoons cumin
  • 1 teaspoon celery seed
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 veggie bouillon cube
  • 1 chile pepper


To make jar:

  1. Layer all ingredients in a clean glass jar (pint size) in the order listed. Close lid, add tag, and gift.

To make soup:

  1. Remove wrapper from bouillon cube, add it, plus all remaining ingredients, plus six cups of water into a saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce heat to low, and simmer until the beans are tender and the soup is thick, about 90 minutes, adding more water as necessary to soften the beans Remove and discard the chile pepper and bay leaves before serving. Season to taste.
