Black Bean Soup

A Versatile Side or Main Course

Black Bean Soup is a classic dish from Cuba that is enjoyed throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. Black bean soup recipes allow for great versatility as a soup that stands alone or poured over rice for an elegant and unexpectedly flavorful main course.

Our GOYA® Cuban Black Bean Soup packs a delicious, seasoned bite that won’t overwhelm the satisfying texture of our naturally low-fat beans.

Tip By La Cocina Goya

Tastier Bean Soup

If your soup has a good consistency, but the beans haven’t fully absorbed the flavors of the herbs and spices, try this: Turn off the heat and let the soup sit, covered, 10-15 minutes more. This hot environment will encourage the seasonings to penetrate the beans, without allowing any liquid to evaporate, so your soup will look as good as it tastes!
