Crema de Frijol Negro


Bacon slice chopped Butter Diced Onion Black beans cans drained Salt Vegetable broth Sour cream

Cook the bacon


Start by cooking the bacon, remove it and drain any excess grease. Discard the bacon grease, except for about 1 tablespoon to cook the onion.

Cook the onion


Add the onion to the pot and cook until translucent. Remove from the pot.

Blend until smooth


Add the drained beans, salt, sauteed onions, sour cream, and broth to a blender, and blend until smooth.

Bring to a boil


Pour the bean sauce into the pot and bring it to a boil. Stir occasionally while it’s cooking, or it will stick to the bottom.

Taste for salt and texture


The bean soup will thicken up as it cooks. Also, taste for salt and texture. It should be smooth and delicious.

¡Buen provecho!
