  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 16 ounces black refried beans
  • 28 ounces fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • 15 ounce canned black beans drained and rinsed
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 TBS cumin
  • 1 TBS chili powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried cliantro
  • ½ cup beef broth add more if desired


  • Brown ground beef in a medium dutch oven or soup pot over medium high heat, crumbling beef while it is cooking.  Place beef in a colander to drain grease.
  • Add beef to dutch oven or pot.
  • Drain and rinse black beans in a colander and pour them into pot with beef.
  • Add all additional ingredients to pot, stirring until well combined.
  • Cook on medium to low heat and allow to simmer for at least 20 minutes.


  • My favorite black refried beans are the Trader Joe's Black Refried Beans with Jalapeños.  It adds a bit more flavor!  
  • Regular refried beans will work, but I do prefer refried beans.
  • I like a thicker soup, if you prefer it thinner, add more beef broth.
