Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 (14-ounce) can fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans black beans, rinsed, drained, and divided
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup (2 ounces) finely chopped reduced-fat ham (such as Hormel)

Preparation

  1. 1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a large saucepan. Add 1 1/2 cans beans; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes. Place bean mixture in a blender. Remove center piece of blender lid (to allow steam to escape); secure lid on blender. Place a clean towel over opening in lid (to avoid splatters). Blend until smooth. Return soup to pan. Add remaining 1/2 can of beans to pan; cook 2 minutes. Stir in juice; set aside.
  2. 2. Heat a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add ham to pan; cook 2 minutes or until lightly browned. Ladle 1 cup soup into each of 4 bowls; top each serving with 1 tablespoon ham.
