Trader Joe's Black Bean SoupThis is the perfect dish for that cold day or simply when you’re craving a little spice and comfort food. This is super simple because it’s really just combining foods. I make a lot of meals from scratch but when the ingredients in boxed or pre-prepared food are good, I use them. They’re better for you than fast food and often taste homemade.
