New here? Like us on Facebook below:

I was given the opportunity to try out Hurst Family Harvest Bean Soups and of course I jumped at the chance!  If you have followed Addicted to Saving, you know that I LOVE cooking with beans.  They are low fat, high fiber and high protein.  AND, Hurst Family Harvest Soups are Gluten-Free which makes me VERY happy!

Hurst Family Harvest has seven different soup mixes to choose from.  They are sold at Publix, Whole Foods, Food Lion, MARSH, ingles and more!  If you shop at Publix, they are usually priced around $2.99/soup mix.  The Chipotle Lime Black Bean Soup (see below for the recipe) has 10 servings.  Awesome deal!

Sweet Pepper & Asparagus Black Bean Soup Recipe

**I altered the recipe on the back of the Hurst Family Harvest Chipotle Lime Black Bean Soup to make it vegetarian.  Their recipe calls for smoked sausage which sounds amazing!  You could very easily alter my recipe below to add either different vegetables, smoked sausage or another type of meat!  I love Hurst Family Harvest soups because they are easy to adapt to your eating preferences!

Ingredients

1 Package Chipotle Lime Black Bean Soup
1/2 Green Bell Pepper (diced)
1/2 Red Bell Pepper (diced)
1/2 lb Asparagus (diced)
1 cup Onion (diced)
2 T Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Cloves Garlic
1 teaspoon Chili Pepper (if desired)

Directions

1) Rinse and sort through the beans. Pour beans into a large bowl or pot and cover with 2 inches of warm water. Soak 4 hours or overnight.
2) Drain and rinse beans and discard water.
3) In a soup pot, saute peppers, asparagus and onion in olive oil.
4) Once vegetables are softened, add 7 cups of water and beans. Turn heat to high and bring to a boil. Stir periodically.
5) Reduce the heat to low and cover the pot. With pot cover, simmer for 60 minutes – stir periodically.
6) Uncover and simmer uncovered for an additional 15 minutes.
7) Once beans are fully tender, add seasoning packet. Simmer for an additional 10 minutes.
Serve & Enjoy :)

    I think the sweet pepper and asparagus soup sounds divine! I love 1black bean soup and this option sounds great… toss in some kielbasa and we are set!

  8. Tracy T says

    I have heard so many great things about Hurst Family products, and I would love to try the Southwestern White Bean Chili!

  9. ReneeRN says

    I would love to try southwestern white chili- I’m sure the cumin would add just the right zingity zing to accent the white beans- yummy!

  10. Julie H says

    I’d like to try the Chipotle Lime black bean…looks great with peppers and asparagus!

  11. Debra Perry says

    asparagus and black bean looks amazing! What a GREAT idea for a giveaway. I always need a good new recipe!

  12. Milica says

    I don’t want to win the contest since there are no Publix where I live, but wanted to say Thank You! For introducing me to these soups! One of my daughters has life threatening allergies to carrots and potatoes and finding soups without these ingredients is nearly impossible! Most of these soups have neither!! YAY!!!!!

  13. Linda Burgoyne says

    I would like to try the Hurst Family Harvest Old World Lentil soup mix. Thanks for the chance to win. : )

  14. vickie says

    I loved the tri-bean with hambone and boy it was very good. I made it last weekend. Now, want to try all the others!
    Thanks.

    Thanks for the chance to win this awesome gc and
    Happy New Year!

  16. Angie says

    I would most like to try the split pea soup. Sometimes split pea soup is grainy and I am always afraid to try new brands. If the split pea is anything like their other products I should be in luck for a great new soup.

  17. Karen Collins says

    I am new to the site and although my love is always Split Pea, I would love to try the red beans with rice.

  18. says

    They ALL sound so……….. good, but I would like to try Chipotle Lime Black Bean.,
    I’m a newcomer, but plan on looking for these beans at my Publix in the next few days.

  19. Dee Kermode says

    I have neve tried white beans for chili so it’s the SW White Bean chili! There’s another Dee here?

  20. Fonda Brown says

    Your sweet pepper asparagus black bean soup sounds delicious! Will definitely try your recipe.

  21. Sylvia says

    I would love to try all of them! My forst choice would have to be the Old World Lentil. Instead of adding sausage, I think cornish game hens and kale would be delicious :)

  22. Jessica Millwood says

    I would love to try southwestern white bean chili. Im also a new follower on pinterest and your daily email! Thanks!

  23. Michelle C says

    I would love to try the Chipotle Lime Black Beans! We eat a lot of black beans and love them! And them being GF is awesome, since I have Celiac Disease. :0)

  24. Madison says

    I am Cajun and always looking for competitive red beans so I’d like to check out the Bayou Cajun Red Bean Soup.

  26. Patti says

    What? I have to choose only ONE? lol – Black Bean is my first choice, and then white bean chili would be my second soup choice. But then again, ALL the Hurst soups are good! And GOOD FOR YOU , too!

  27. caroline says

    The black bean one so I could make the soup with the asparagus. Gluten free too, even better.

  28. Kristy Thornton says

    I would love to try the traditional split pea soup to see how it compares to my mom’s growing up!

  29. Gina Marie says

    I would like to try the split pea soup. All the rest sound really spicy, anyone know if they really are spicy?

  30. Karen says

  31. Sara says

    I believe I would try the old world lentil soup. Sounds yummy and easy (the best of both worlds)

  32. Stacy Hitson says

    Honestly, all the soups look good. I am a huge bean fan, so I’d probably try them all… if up to me, but the hubby hates beans :(
