Comfort Food Friday: Main Dish Week

Refried Bean Soup

When I placed a bowl of this soup in front of Brian, he was a little skeptical.  He thought it looked a little bland. Not one to complain, though, he took a bite...and another and another...and went back to the pot of seconds!  It is warm, fragrant, and flavorful-- the perfect combination for a fall day!

Chop 1 small onion and saute it in 1 tablespoon of oil.  Stir in  2 cans northern beans (drained), 1 can of kidney beans (drained), 1 can of pinto beans (drained), 1 teaspoon of ground thyme, a dash of chili powder, and a dash of garlic powder.  Add 4 cups of chicken or vegetable broth and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to low.  Use a food processor or blender to puree soup in batches.  Simmer and serve with grated cheese and tortilla chips

What is your go-to comfort dinner?  Consider linking up!

  1. I'm definitely trying this!!!! My husband will worry about blandness too... he really likes flavor. We'll see how it goes! :)

  2. I just added this to our menu for next week. I have lots of dried beans on hand and we all love refried beans.
