Bean soup

Lately I have been addicted to bean soup. Super easy and cheap. For example, yesterday I took a can of black beans from Trader Joes'(79 cents a can). Opened it and poured it in without rinsing into a pot. Added some water, a few squirts of Braggs, some onion and garlic powder and the item that really does it for me, Gourmet Garden cilantro paste. It comes in a tube and you have to keep it refrigerated. I use about two toothpaste head sized pieces of paste and heat all of it up. It just tastes great!

I also will make chips from corn tortillas and put them in the bottom of the bowl before heating the soup. It is all so tasty!

I love soups too - where do you find the cilantro paste? Do you have to buy it at a gourmet shop?
