Creamy Black Bean Soup


  • 4 cups dried beans, soaked overnight
  • 10 cups of water
  • 1- 7oz can pickled jalapenos
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 4 tsp of salt or to taste


After you have soaked your beans overnight, drain and rinse them thoroughly.  Add them to a crockpot with 10 cups of water, onion powder, garlic powder, and the can of pickled jalapenos with the juice and all. Put the lid on and cook on high for 10-11 hours or until the beans are very soft. 

Once done carefully transfer the beans to a blender, you will have to do this in 2 batches. Then add 1 cup of the bean liquid from the crock pot at a time, and blend. Keep adding liquid until you get the creamy consistency and thickness you desire.  Then salt to taste. 

I like to serve this with lime, cilantro, pickled onions, and a little avocado.  It goes great over rice!

*This makes a lot and freezes great! 


Makes 14-16 servings.

    I used your recipe, but used fat free refried beans that I had on hand. It was delicious!

      You put refried beans into the crockpot?

    When you made it in the instant pot how did you adjust the recipe?

    An immersion blender would work, too 🙂

    Made this last night for the family. It was a great big hit. And so simple and easy (my favorite). I served it with chopped red onions, cilantro, pickled jalapenos, and lime. It would have been next level with avocados but I was out. Thanks for the inspiration!

    How different would this be to make in an instant pot? I no longer have a slow cooker and the iPot function is more of a keep warm.

      I do it in the instant pot and it comes out great. Just use the bean function.

    Can I make this with canned beans?

    Just got home from work to the delicious smell of creamy black bean soup cooking in my crockpot .
    So looking forward to have a bowl with rice for dinner..
    Just had to have a taste before adding the beans to my vitamix ohhhh so good!!!!

    I made this exactly as directed except instead of a jar of jalapeños I used 2 regular sized cans of Ro⭐️Tel Diced Tomatoes & Green Chiles and a small can of diced green chiles. It’ was fantastic. Next time though I will reduce the amount of water because it was too thin since I added the tomatoes. I already have some more beans soaking to make more. So so good.

    […] pulses. You still want it to have some texture so do not overblend.  Enjoy on tostadas , or in the Creamy Black Bean Soup (link), or with the Cheesy Vegan Chile […]
