Spicy Black Bean Soup

Don't let the "spicy" scare you off from this soup. You can easily adjust the spices to make it less spicy. Or, add an extra scoop of sour cream to mellow the heat. Green chilis, jalapeno and chili pepper add the heat. Paprika and cumin provide a background smoky flavor and a generous squeeze of lime juice contributes a bit of much needed acidity.
