Black Bean Soup with Mummy Dogs

Another fun Halloween dinner here, did I mention Miss B made me a 2 mile long list of Halloween food she wants us to make??? I need to take a picture of her list, it's 2 pages long and she has teeny tiny handwriting, I would need to make like 4 things a day at least to get through it by Halloween! Any how this was one of her things, the Mummy Dogs, she made them by herself while I made the Black Bean Soup. If you want the instructions for them they are posted on my kid krafting blog.

I am entering this soup in the-

Which has LOTS of yummy soup entries posted every Sunday, I have gotten a LOT of great soup recipes and inspiration over there :)

Fast, Simple Black Bean Soup
2c. chicken broth
1c. drained, rinsed black beans
1/2 c. regular refried beans
1c. nacho cheese sauce
1 pkg microwave steamer corn

Place the broth, beans and cheese in the blender and blend until smooth, pour into a med sauce pan and heat slowly- while soup is heating start your corn cooking in the microwave. Stir soup often until bubbly- place a layer of corn in the bottom of your bowl then ladle the soup on top.
I put a dollop of sour cream on top of mine and I bet some cilantro would have been pretty but I didn't have any :)

Those mummy dogs are the cutest things ever! And could that soup be any easier to make? Such delish ingredients, I'll be making that really soon!

I love the mummy dogs! I'm going to have to show them to my daughter, I think she'd like to make them.

The soup sounds like something I would love. I was just looking for a similar recipe on AR a week ago.
