Caribbean Black Bean

In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue … in search of spices, gold, and India. He found spices and gold, but in a whole "new world" … the Caribbean. The Caribbean eventually became known for its magnificent beaches and delicious food. Whether on vacation or trading goods, New Englanders learned to love the sweet and savory tastes of the islands. We invite you to take a break from the usual and indulge in this succulent combination of black beans, bell peppers, garlic, cumin, allspice, and a touch of jalapeños for a "little kick". Folks say our Caribbean Black Bean soup "is like a vacation in a bowl!"

Caribbean Black Bean

Caribbean Black Bean Soup Nutrition Facts

Black Beans.

Black beans were first domesticated over 7,000 years ago in the region of South America now known as Peru. Dried black beans have black skin, creamy white flesh and a sweet, rich flavor sometimes compared to that of mushrooms. They are called turtle beans, French beans, black kidney beans, black Mexican beans and Mexican beans. We call them tasty and good for you!

Red and Green Peppers.

Red Peppers are part of the family of bell peppers that come in a range of colors: green, yellow, orange, and, of course, red. Native to Central and South America, bell peppers have a recessive gene that lacks capsaicin, the component that gives other varieties of peppers their hot taste. The green bells are unripe peppers and so are a bit light on taste. We love the reds and greens together for their color and texture.


Contrary to popular belief, allspice is not a blend of "all spices". It does, however, have a naturally inherent sweet and spicy flavor reminiscent of cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg and hot pepper. Christopher Columbus discovered allspice in the Caribbean. Although he was looking for pepper, he had never actually seen real pepper and thought allspice was it. Guess it always has been challenging to recognize something correctly that you’ve never seen!

Jalapeno Peppers.

Jalapenos are named after the city in Mexico where they were first found: Jalapa. While the Aztecs are usually given credit for discovering this variety of chili pepper, the peppers existence predates the Aztecs' arrival in Mexico City.
