This lightly smoky black bean soup is on rotation in my kitchen all winter long. I hope it becomes a favorite for you, too. To vary its flavor, try hot or sweet paprika instead of smoked paprika. Or spice it up with 1 Tbs. of chipotle powder instead of the smoked paprika. Want a thicker, creamy soup? Carefully purée 2 cups of the soup in a blender, then stir back into the pot.
