One of my favorite soups, believe it or not, is a special bean soup that I first tasted when living in Central America.
It's "frijole" (pronounced frih-hole-ley). Now, frijoles are small, dark beans that can be found in packages in most supermarkets.
Here in the United States, however, they are not called "frijoles" ----just small, dark red beans.
We use a crock pot to cook them, usually overnight on a low setting.
For the soup, hubs adds boullion cubes dissolved in boiling water.
Then, he adds onion powder, maybe a touch of cayenne or red pepper flakes and, if available, fresh chopped cilantro or green onion.
Oh! And he cracks a raw egg into the hot broth, too, and lets it harden a bit.
I also like to add a big dollop of sour cream on top. Mmm mmm mmm
The result is a truly luscious soup.
We always eat it with warm, folded tortillas.
This might not appeal to everyone but I love frijole soup!
