Another family favorite recipe that has been scratched on a piece of paper without knowing where it came from. It's a delicious soup and though we've tried many black bean soups on Zaar and elsewhere and really liked them, this one is our favorite.

  1. Mash one of the cans of beans with the juice with a potato masher. Drain and rinse the other two cans of beans and set these whole beans aside.
  2. Add salsa, garlic powder, chili powder, salt, and cumin to the one can of beans that were mashed, then set aside.
  3. In a pot bring the broth, water, and onion to a boil.
  4. Simmer until the onions are clear. Then add the corn and all of the beans to the pot (both the mashed and the ones not mashed).
  5. Stir well and then simmer at a low heat for about a half hour.
  6. Can serve topped with sour cream and diced green onions.
