Needs a little more work
February 26, 2011
If you puree enough of the soup you will get the consistency shown in the picture. Here is my recipe:
16 oz black beans soaked overnight
1 large yellow onion
4 cloves garlic
1 tsp cumin
2 teaspoons chile powder (medium chimayo)
½ tsp worcester
celery 1 stalk chopped
2 tbs chopped cilantro
2 carrots chopped
½ teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
1 2-cup Knorr Swiss beef bouillon cube (or 2 tsp granules)
10 slices thick bacon cut up
Procedure
Cook bacon in microwave
Saute onion and garlic in bacon fat
Add remaining ingredients and crumble in bacon
Add water to cover (?6 cups and add more later if necessary)
Cook 2-3 hr or until beans are tender
Remove a ladle at a time and puree, returning to the pot until your desired consistency is obtained.

The Soup looks NOTHING like what is pictured
February 4, 2011
Though I followed this recipe to the letter, I ended up with a thin liquidy soup that looks nothing like what is pictured. I can't even suggest what to do to fix it. I think that 6 cups of liquid might be a misprint.
