I cannot even begin to express how delicious this Chipotle Pumpkin Black Bean Soup Recipe was! I know it’s officially spring, the weather is getting warmer, and the last thing we want is a hearty pumpkin soup to remind us of the cold weather season. BUT…this soup is absolutely worth it. I was inspired by Rachel Ray’s version which I recently came across. But my version is very different from hers, and a lot less in Weight Watchers Points Plus. Using non-traditional flavors with pumpkin (like cumin and chipotle) really brought out some wonderful new tastes. And the roasted onions and garlic added such an amazing flavor! This soup turned out incredible – and, all that fiber made it so filling! Each nicely sized serving is just 3 Points +. I had a bowl of this soup with a side salad for lunch, and I was totally full until dinner time. So don’t push back that canned pumpkin in your pantry until next fall…use it right now in this incredible Chipotle Pumpkin Black Bean Soup Recipe. You will love it!
Chipotle Pumpkin Black Bean Soup
An amazingly delicious and hearty fall soup recipe, this Weight Watchers Soup will not disappoint! Filling, flavorful, and just 3 Points +, you won’t be able to wait until fall to get this dish on your table.
- 1 15oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 28 oz can diced tomatoes
- 2 15 oz can pure pumpkin puree
- 1 medium onion, cut into 1 inch chunks
- 5 cloves garlic
- 3 cups fat free vegetable broth
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1 tbsp cumin
- 2 tsp smoked paprika
- 1 tbsp chipotle chili powder
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- Spray a baking sheet with non-fat cooking spray and place onions and garlic on it. Place in oven and let cook until onions begin to blacken on the edges, about 15-20 minutes.
- In a blender, puree the black beans with the diced tomatoes, onions, garlic, and 1 1/2 cups of the vegetable broth until smooth (depending on the size of your blender, you may need to do this in 2 batches). You can also make this a bit chunky if you like, just use the pulse option during your puree.
- Place a Dutch oven or large sauce pan on medium high heat. Add in the puree from the blender, the canned pumpkin, and the remaining broth. Stir well to combine all ingredients.
- Bring to a simmer, then turn heat down to medium low. Add in the seasonings, cover, and let cook for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Stir in vinegar, and let cook for another 5 minutes. Serve immediately.
