Quick and Easy Black Bean Soup

I went to make black bean soup one night and realized the recipe I was going to use was a crock pot recipe. Whoops.  So I totally improvised this and it was delicious!

2 cans black beans
1 tbsp olive oil
1 red pepper (diced)
1 onion (diced)
1 tsp garlic (minced)
1 1/2 cups chicken or veggie broth
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp salt

In a pot saute the pepper, onion and garlic until tender.  Add the black beans and broth.  Bring to a boil then turn down and let simmer for 10 minutes.  Put the mixture into a blender in two batches.  Blended for about 30 seconds then place back into the pot.  Bring back to a boil then lower to a simmer and add in the cumin, chili powder and salt.  Let the mixture simmer for 10 more minute then serve with sour cream and cheese.
