In heavy-bottomed soup pot, sauté onion until soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Add garlic, cumin, chipotle powder, cinnamon, salt, Sucanat and half of the cilantro. Sauté an additional 2 to 3 minutes until very fragrant, stirring often. Add tomatoes and beans. Sauté an additional 2 to 3 minutes.

Add stock and bring to a boil. Simmer gently for 10 to 15 minutes. For best results and creamier soup, blend a cup or two of beans and liquid and return back to pot.

Stir in avocado, lime juice and remaining cilantro. Season with salt and pepper and additional spices, if necessary.


Use less if you prefer milder soup. If the powder is unavailable use a whole dried chipotle pepper, soaked in hot water until soft, and minced.
