Creamy Beany Soup

Prep: 5 minutes Cook: 10 minutes


I used to demo this soup in stores to show just how easy and delicious healthy food can be. The original name of the recipe was "Your Kids Will Love This Soup". And they always did, along with everyone else!!


  • 1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2-16 ounce cans no-fat black or pinto refried beans
  • 1 3/4 cups water
  • 2 cups frozen corn kernels
  • 1/3 cup mild salsa
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • chopped cilantro for garnish (optional)


Place the water in a medium saucepan. Cook and stir until onion is very soft. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Simmer until heated through, stirring occasionally. Serve over whole grains or baked potatoes, or in a bowl by itself. Delicious! And Easy!!
