Black bean soup

 Super spicy, though it will depend a lot on your batch of jalapenos. Extremely tasty with sour cream, and does not require any bread.

Ingredients
1 lb black beans
3 jalapeno peppers
6 cups water
2 bouillon cube
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp cayenne pepper
3/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp Sriracha hot sauce
2 bay leaves
 sour cream
cilantro
tomatoes

Preparation
Wash the beans and cover with water so that the water surface is an inch above the beans. Bring to a boil and turn off the heat. Allow to sit for 2 hours. Drain the beans.

 Add the water, bouillon, spices and mince jalapeno to the soup. Bring to a boil and simmer until beans are cooked. Blend using a handheld blender.
 
Serve with sour cream, cilantro and freshly chopped tomatoes. Delicious!
