I’ve always loved a good black bean soup and this slow cooker recipe is an absolute favorite of mine! I love that I can toss all of the ingredients into the slow cooker in the morning, set the timer and have a hearty, delicious soup that is packed with flavor ready in the afternoons. It is one that I especially turn to on busier days!

With less than 10 ingredients, including the seasonings and the oil, it really doesn’t take that long to prep for the slow cooker either. But, I will share a trick. Many times, I go ahead and prepare all of the ingredients – chop the onion and jalapeno, measure out the spices, rinse my beans, etc, and place everything into the insert that fits into the slow cooker. Then, I just pop the lid on the insert portion (the crock), and place it into the refrigerator overnight.

The next morning, I just have to remove it from the refrigerator and pop it into the slow cooker, set the timer and go! I really does the morning so easy and I know that we’ll have the amazing soup ready and waiting on us for supper.

This black bean soup is also perfect for serving throughout the year for guests who are vegetarian and vegan since it does not contain meat or dairy and uses vegetable broth. But, those meat-lovers in the crowd definitely won’t be complaining! The black beans are so hearty that I’ve never had anyone miss the meat!

Once it has cooked all day, it is rich and ready for serving!

This black bean soup is a bit spicy with the red pepper flakes and the jalapeno. If you aren’t a fan of spicy soups or flavors, just omit these ingredients if you like or adjust to your preference.

I like to garnish with a few fresh green onion to not only add a pop of color but also a little fresh flavor to the soup as well. If you aren’t worried about the dairy, you can also serve with sour cream, shredded cheese to really take this soup over the top!

  1. This sounds like a great fall/winter soup! Just a couple of questions:
    Would replacing the jalapeno with canned diced green chilies cool down the spiciness?
    Could this be frozan?

    • Or FROZEN, since frozan is not a cooking technique I’ve ever heard of 😀

    • Absolutely you could replace the jalapeno chiles with green chiles, it would add good flavor for sure! I also know that a lot of jalapenos are not hot anymore. Twenty years ago they were, but they have bred the heat out (which is sad). Your very best green chiles are from Hatch. They are second to none!

  2. I really LOVE soups and this looks just yummy. I am thinking of making this for this weekend for company (we have a potluck every other Sunday at our house).

  3. this soup is so healthy and delicious. It was my first time to use dried beans (rather than canned) in a soup, and I like how they kept their shape and nice texture. Thanks for a terrific vegetarian offering.

  4. Have you tried adding a sachet of epazote? I usually cook my black beans with it. A kind easier taught me his family’s secret.

  5. Do you soak the beans first?
