2 (15-ounce) cans black beans, drained and divided
2 1/2 cups water, divided
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups diced onion
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce

How to Make It
Place 1 cup beans and 1/2 cup water in a food processor or blender, and process until smooth.
Heat olive oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the onion, and sauté 4 minutes or until onion is soft. Add bean purée, remaining beans, 2 cups water, chili powder, and next 4 ingredients (chili powder through garlic); bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in turkey kielbasa; cook 1 minute or until thoroughly heated.
I've been making this soup for almost 20 years!! I just found it here online because I lost my tattered old copy of the recipe, and was shocked to see it only has one - 1-star!! - review!! This is SO EASY and SO yummy. And love that it only has 291 cals, 18 g of protein and 7g of fiber per serving! We love it with some kale thrown in as well. HEALTHY and YUMMY.
