Crock Pot Cuban Black Bean Soup


This is simple crock pot recipe for black bean soup. I first had black bean soup while living here in central Florida. Florida has a large Cuban population, and their traditions have influenced many Floridian cooks. Growing up in the panhandle of Florida, I was never exposed to Cuban or any other Hispanic food. My only experience with Hispanic foods as a kid were tacos, the most Americanized form of any Hispanic food. Every little Cuban restaurant has their own way of making this classic soup. Some are better than others, of course. I have talked to lots of people about their black bean soup recipes, in which I picked out my favorite parts, and came up with this recipe. Serve with sweet or green fried plantains.
