Mexican cuisine is well known and loved for its vibrant flavors and delicious dishes. But, while your brain may jump to tacos, salads, casseroles and dips, you may not think about soup when it comes to Mexican food.
But, that’s just because you haven’t tried this recipe yet!
After one bowl of this Mexican-inspired spicy bean soup, we promise you will be adding this to your list of favorite Hispanic dishes.
This recipe fully embraces the spiciness and rich tones that traditional Mexican meals are known for. Loaded with green chilis and crushed red peppers kick up the heat while sour cream, yogurt and our rich and creamy pinto beans provide the balancing touches.
Feel free to adjust the heat level of this bean soup recipe to your taste by adding or removing heat. Diced jalapenos and other peppers are a great addition for those who like an extra kick of heat.
Along with pinto beans, fresh tomatoes, garlic and cheese give this dish more classic Mexican cuisine flavors. For a little extra something-something, be sure to top you bowl with some toasted or fried tortillas or tortilla chips for a crunchy element that gives textural variety to the dish.
This dish is a great change up for “Taco Tuesday” when the weather outside is cold or you just don’t have the time to prepare an elaborate meal. This spicy bean soup can be prepared in mere minutes and is a terrific one-pot style meal.
