Step 1:

Place a large pot over medium-high heat, then add the oil. Once the oil is hot, add the chopped onion, diced carrots, celery, and jalapeno pepper. Mix and let them cook for about 4 to 5 minutes or until softened.

Step 2:

Season the vegetables with garlic, cumin, oregano, coriander, cayenne pepper, and salt. Stir until well incorporated for 1 minute, until fragrant.

Step 3:

Add the black beans and chicken broth to the vegetables and stir. Bring it to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low, then cover the pot. Let it simmer for about 15 minutes.

Step 4:

Puree the soup a few times using an immersion blender to have a mix of creamy and chunky textures. If you don’t have one, you can use a standard blender. Just scoop out a cup or two of the soup and blend until smooth, then stir it back into the pot. Next, add the lime juice.
