Hello, and welcome.
I would like to inform you that I AM MOVING.
...well, sort of. I have started a new blog, Oui Crochet, that focuses just on crochet, crochet patterns, and crochet resources. I am in the process of building it up as a one stop shop for all things crochet, and I am very excited about it. I hope you will come over and check out my progress. :)
I will be moving my patterns from this site, to my new site. My idea is to leave this site active, so that you can still access other aspects of this site. I will also leave a modified "introduction" post where each pattern is on this site, as to keep all links active and make it so that you can easily locate the pattern's new home. As an added bonus, you will also find new printable/downloadable versions of my patterns.
I apologize for any inconvenience, but I assure you, this change is a positive one. I look forward to seeing you at Oui Crochet.
Happy Crocheting!

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Quite a while ago, one of my best cooking friends, Linda, turned me on to this really awesome recipe for a black bean soup.
It is so yummy, and after all of the cooking that many of you did this past week, I thought now would be a great time to share this super quick and easy recipe!

The original recipe can be found on HERE.
I usually stick pretty close to the recipe, but I do modify it just a bit, to my family's taste.
Here are my slight modifications:

Black Bean and Salsa Soup
(serves 4)
What You Need:

2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, drained OR 2 cans refried black beans (I have also used regular refried beans, and it was very good!)
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 cup chunky salsa (I like Pace. Picante sauce is good too.)
1 teaspoon ground cumin

Shredded cheese (cheddar, monterey, or colby is good)
Tortilla chips

What You Do:

  1. Put the beans, broth, salsa, and cumin in a medium saucepan.
  2. Use a stick blender to pulverize it until all of the ingredients are smooth. (You can also use a blender or food processor, but a stick blender is waaay easier and faster to clean.)
  3. Heat the soup on medium, until thoroughly heated.
  4. Top with cheese and serve with tortilla chips.
