bean and pumpkin soup

It is not autumn here yet.  And it does not really feel like home yet either.  That is the land now.  Even with bears and cougars.  But this is where we are.  When I am not feeling well or feeling down, soup is my go to meal.  It is really easy in the slow cooker.  I needed a pot of soup to help me through.  It was dinner last night.  It was lunch today.  I tried another soup today that just did not turn out as well.  But this one is good.

bean and pumpkin soup

1 to 1 1/2 cups midnight beans

1 cup white beans

1 pint canned pumpking chunks with the water

1 small onion, peeled and chopped

4 cloves garlic

1/4 teaspoon ground ancho chili

1/4 teaspoon ground chipollte chili

1/2 teaspoon paprika

water or vegetable broth

1 teaspoon black pepper

2 teaspoons salt

In a slow cooker, put your beans.  Wash slowly and well.  Make it a prayer.  Put everything else in but the salt.  You want fluid to about a 1/2 to 1 inch from the top.  Turn on low and let cook for eight hours.  Blend.  Add salt to taste.

I like serving this with tortilla chips but fresh tortillas would be good too.  It is just what I needed.
