Chicken and Black Bean Soup

Oh my goodness.

I have just been in a funk lately.

I know why.  I was totally burned out.

I’m used to juggling the kids, school, sports, a husband that travels, work, cooking, family, church…ohmyheckIamoverwhelmingmyself.  That wasn’t it.  Or maybe it was and I just got fed up.

I had a moment.  You know.  Those “I have too much to do so I’m gonna sit in this chair watching Murder, She Wrote reruns while I think about all the stuff I have to do” days weeks.

So I had my little tantrum aaaaaaannnnnnd

I’m good.

You good?

Good.  It’s good.  This is good.

The soup, that is, since that is really why you are here.  It is really good.  And healthy.  And easy.

And totally tantrum free.

Unless it’s gone.  Then you can throw a tantrum.  Just a little one.


  1. I must try this soon, I love black beans and chicken and the flavors sound just right in this!

  2. This looks really good! I’ve been in my own funk lately and this may be just what I need to get out of it. Here’s to it being all good!

  3. Such a great hearty & healthy soup recipe 🙂

    • We are finally getting our snow so I couldn’t have made it at a better time. Hope you are able to enjoy some of the powder whether it’s here or Colorado. 🙂

  4. This looks delicious! I love how simple it is and the outcome is a tasty meal! Definitely a must try for me! 🙂

    • Thanks Jennifer! I was so excited with the result. My mom tried making beans for my dad in college and it turned into an emergency room visit so I’ve always been a bit scared of dried beans!

    Sometimes you just need a tantrum! Delicious looking soup.

  6. I have been in a funk too. I was having trouble getting inspired to get back into the kitchen, but I am back, and I am so glad you are too! You’re AWESOME!! Oh, and the soup looks great! I love black bean soup!

  7. Sounds lovely! Just found your blog and visited Pinterest and got stuck looking at some magazines by British cookbook authors; major talent! I think it was the pink lemonade photo that took me into that never-never land. Now I’d better get to work. lol

    • Ahhh, the wonderful world of Pinterest. It’s so easy to get sucked in! I’m glad you found me though and I hope you’ll find some keepers for your recipe file!
