Step 1

Heat the olive oil in a large heavy bottomed pot over medium heat. Add the sausage, onion, bell pepper, garlic, jalapeño, and cherry peppers. Stir in the spices – cumin, chili powder, and smoked paprika. Season with salt.

Add in the black beans and chicken stock. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Partially cover and allow to simmer for about 1 1/2 hours, until the beans are tender.

Partially blend with an immersion blender to thicken the soup. Adjust the seasonings taste, and serve.
