Black Bean Soup

There comes a time in every person's life where they need to make dinner in a jiffy. It's okay, it happens to us all. Sometimes you just gotta stop at Del Taco, and other times, when you've stopped at Del Taco three days in a row...you just have to think of something else. This recipe was just about the easiest thing I have ever made, and I thought it tasted great. I probably wouldn't serve it at my next dinner party, but if I did my next dinner party would certainly be less stressful! I look forward to making it again soon - especially since all three of my kids came back for seconds, and thirds!

Black Bean Soup
by: Favorite Family Recipes

3 cans black beans (do not drain)
2 cans chicken broth (which I figured was slightly less than four cups...not sure if that is true or not)
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups cooked rice (how lucky that I had leftover rice in the fridge, eh?)
avocado, sliced
grated cheese
tortilla chips (the best thing you can do in your life is throw your tortilla chips on a cookie sheet and let them sit in a 250 dg oven for ten minutes, trust me)
sour cream

Blend together the black beans with one of the cans of chicken broth. Add black bean mixture, the other can of chicken broth, and salt to a large pan. Cook on medium heat until nice and hot (no need to boil, though mine did...and spilled all over the stove...sigh). In individual bowls, layer the rice, then the soup, then the toppings.

Notes: I mixed the rice in with the soup while it was heating and nothing bad happened : )
