Cuban Black Bean Soup Recipe

I really love getting emails from different websites that include recipes. This one was found in an email from Eat Better America and I knew it was one I had to try! We eat tons of black beans around our house, so this seemed like a perfect fit. It turned out delicious, with the few changes I made from the original. Serve it with some Cumin Garlic Bread!

What you need:
1 medium onion,diced
4 cloves garlic,diced
1 green pepper, diced
6 c. beef broth
3/4 c. apple juice
2- 15oz cans black beans, rinsed
1 ham steak, diced
3/4 c. instant brown rice
1-1/2 c. tomatoes, diced
1-1/2 tsp. oregeno
2 tsp. cumin
salt and pepper
olive oil
diced hard boiled egg (optional)

In a stock pot over medium, medium high heat, saute onion, garlic and green pepper in some olive oil for about 5 minutes. Add beef broth, apple juice, black beans, ham, rice, tomatoes, oregano, cumin, salt and pepper.

Bring to a boil, cook over medium heat for a half hour to 45 minutes or until veggies are tender! Top with diced hard boiled egg! Enjoy!
