Cuban Spiced Black Bean Soup

As the days are getting shorter, the air is getting colder, and here in Seattle the sun is making fewer and fewer public appearances. It can be easy to get lost in the gloomy grey blanket of winter in the Pacific Northwest (I know I’d rather be on a beach), but winter does bring the time for some of my favorite meals. Rich, hearty, long-simmering stews, soups, and braised meats can be the perfect accompaniment to a cozy night indoors by the fire or fortification to warm you from the inside when you have to brave the elements outdoors.

To beat the winter blues, I like to crank up the rumba, turn on the sun lamp, and make a big pot of Cuban Spiced black bean soup while day dreaming about a Havana vacation. Our Cuban Spice adds a bright flavor to hearty ingredients like black beans and ham, and brings them together with fresh ingredients . Although this recipe is very mild, it takes a few hot peppers quite well for those of us looking for a little extra zing.
