Black Bean and Chorizo Soup with Rice

This is a recipe I found on Pinterest and slightly altered. I made this once before and really enjoyed it, so I decided to was time to share it with you.

2 cans of seasoned black beans (drained, not rinsed)
32 oz chicken broth (one carton)
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 cup chopped onion
2 cloves of garlic minced
2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp cumin

1 lb chorizo
white rice cooked according to package directions
fresh cilantro

The first thing I did was remove the chorizo from it's skin. Then I chopped it up in a pan while browning it. 

While the sausage is browning, put some olive oil in a large pot and add the onions, garlic, chili powder and cumin. Cook until the onion and garlc begin to soften and release their juices.

 Add the chicken broth and the black beans. Let everything simmer for about a half hour on low heat. 
While the soup is simmering, cook the rice according to package directions. Using an emersion blender, blend up some of the soup mixture to get a creamy consistency.  If you don't have one, you could move some of the soup to a regular blender or a food processor. I probably was a little over zealous, but it was still wonderful.

Once it's nice and creamy, add the sausage to the soup.

For serving, put a little rice in a bowl...
Top the rice with a large ladle of the soup...
Garnish the soup with some fresh cilantro, and enjoy!

*I made this over a month ago, but just finally got around to adding the photos and posting it. Now I wish I had made this soup today so that I could eat some right now.
