1 small red bell pepper, seeded and finely diced
3 large garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon ground cumin

How to Make It
Combine 2 teaspoons oil, 1/2 teaspoon ground chipotle, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a shallow dish. Add shrimp, tossing to coat.
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 4-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and bell pepper; sauté 3 minutes or until soft. Add garlic, cumin, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon ground chipotle; sauté 1 minute. Stir in beans, broth, black pepper, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 3 minutes.
Transfer 1 cup soup to a blender; puree until smooth. Stir smooth mixture into soup; keep warm.
Heat remaining 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add shrimp; cook 1 minute. Turn and cook 1 more minute. Remove from heat; add tequila, tossing shrimp to coat.
Stir juices from shrimp, lime juice, and cilantro into soup. Ladle soup into bowls, and top with shrimp. Serve with chips; garnish, if desired.

This is a great way to dress up a healthy bowl of bean soup while making guests feel "special." Because the shrimp is essentially a garnish, everyone gets a taste of seafood while the dish remains affordable. I would not have thought to pair shrimp with black bean soup.
