Easy Pantry Meal Recipe
Today I offer you a recipe that is easily made from what you may already have in your pantry! The list of 8 ingredients is made up of items easily found on any given day in my kitchen, and hopefully yours too.
The first time I made this, it was out of necessity. We had several inches of snow one day a few years back, and living on a hill means you stay home. I went hunting through the pantry for the fixings of a warm and hearty lunch.
This bean soup recipe is 100% from the pantry and fridge, from ingredients I always have on hand.
How To Make Black Bean Soup
Not only is this chipotle black bean soup recipe an easy pantry meal recipe, it is versatile in the ingredients you add.
I also give you three cooking methods!
If you love spicy heat, feel free to be generous with the number of chipotles. Wanting to keep it on the mild side? Omit the chipotles and just add a tablespoon or two of the adobo sauce, or just start with one or two chipotle.
Instructions for this soup recipe include several cooking methods: stovetop, pressure cooker, and slow cooker.
I wrote the recipe for a stovetop dutch oven, and if your pressure cooker / slow cooker has a sauté function, you literally follow the same instructions, up to bring to a boil. Then you simply scroll down to the cook times for either machine you opted for.
