Coat a medium saucepan with cooking spray, and place over medium-high heat until hot. Add onion, bell pepper, and garlic; sauté 3 minutes. Add chili powder and next 8 ingredients (chili powder through broth); bring to a boil. Stir in half of beans; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes.
Place soup in a food processor or blender, and process until smooth. Return to pan; stir in remaining beans. Cook until thoroughly heated.
I'm not sure what happened with the previous reviewer, since we have made this soup several times now and it's always great. Sometimes we blend, sometimes we don't, and lately I've been adding spicy turkey sausage to make this a meal in itself. Yum!
