Slimming Black Bean Soup

What you will need
1 1/2 cans fat free chicken broth
2 cans of organic black beans (drained)
1 1/2 bunch's of green onions (chopped)
1/2 bunch cilantro
2 cups grape tomatoes
1 tablespoon garlic salt
crushed red pepper (as much as you like)
1 jalapeno
1 lime
Start by chopping up your cilantro and green onions. ( You are going to blend them so they don't have to be super chopped)

Then measure out 2 cups of grape tomatoes and

drain you black beans.

Start by pouring in your 1 1/2 cups of chicken broth

then add cilantro, green onions, black beans ( only pour 3/4 of each can in blender), garlic salt, crush red pepper

and finish it off with the lime juice.

Mix it all together,

and pour into large pot. (It is going to be a yucky color but it will change color once cooked)

Cook on medium and add what you have left of the black beans.
Cook for about 45 minutes
( Add  a chopped jalapeno, if you want it spicy)

stirring occasionally, it will slowly turn into a dark brown color.
Once it has,

get ready to enjoy!
