Cajun Pumpkin Black Bean Soup with Ramen Noodles
There were a few packages of chicken parts in the freezer and it was time to make some stock.
Once the stock was made I browsed Pinterest. Every recipe I wanted to make, I didn't have the ingredients. I decided to "wing" it and create a soup with what I had on hand.
8 cups chicken stock ( I don't add salt when I make it)
1 28 ounce can pumpkin puree
2- 15 ounce can black beans - rinsed
1 cup half and half
2 tablespoons Slap Ya Mama ( depending on how much spice you like add more or less)
2 packages Ramen Noodles crushed - toss out the flavor package
Add chicken broth,pumpkin puree, blackbeans, half & half and Slap Ya Mama to a large pot. Stir until well combined.
Simmer slowly until hot but do not boil.
Add the crushed ramen and heat until the noodles are soft.
Garnish with cheese or toasted ramen. I also used green onion to garnish.
