Spicy Mexican Bean Soup recipe

Hey, Guys! I started a new series called ‘A Taste of Adventure’. It’s gonna be recipes that I have tried and liked when I was on holiday. To start off the series I am going to show you my (easy) recipe on how to make a Mexican Bean Soup. This recipe serves 3-4 people and lasts for around 3 days. It’s a great feel-good soup that just warms you up inside on a chilly evening. Now, I am not the best cook so the goal for this series is to make easy and healthy recipes that anyone can make at home themselves. So, let’s start!
