Black Bean Tomato Soup with Cilantro Lime Cream
The nice thing about cooking for one (the hubby is on a business trip) is that you're left with tons of leftovers - which means 40 minutes of effort can feed you for days.
I made a quick soup on Monday, pictured above - find the recipe here, and I finally polished off the leftovers last night.
The ingredients for the soup were inexpensive and it tasted perfectly smoky and (really) spicy, although the cilantro lime cream helps to temper the heat.
I omitted the bacon from the recipe, used olive oil when sauteing the onions/celery, and added 1/4 tsp of smoked paprika to kick it up a notch.
It's another great soup for a cold winter night.
