What four ingredients do you need from your pantry to make this homemade soup? Black beans, vegetable broth, salsa and ground cumin. I like to garnish the heated soup with shredded Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese from the fridge. *Note: For Halloween, I use cookie cutters to turn sliced cheese into ghost, pumpkin and bat shapes for the garnish. Black beans are a great source of protein, so you can feel good about putting some nutrition in everyone’s bellies before they go out Trick or Treating.
