Pinto Bean Soup Recipe (Vegan, Vegetarian)

This pinto bean soup recipe is a hearty, filling, and delicious lunch or dinner! A great vegan & vegetarian soup that’s hearty and full of flavor.

This soup is loaded with vegetables: onions, carrots, peppers, and garlic give this soup a great base, while the chili powder and cumin give this soup a nice smokey flavor. Serve with delicious cornbread and an avocado salad, and top with spicy pickled onions for a fantastic dinner!

I love a good cold-weather soup, and this spicy pinto bean soup is the perfect bowl to warm you up!  It’s a little spicy from fresh jalapeno peppers and chili powder, and so delicious and loaded with vegetables and beans. 

This pinto bean soup makes the perfect lunch too, as pinto beans are loaded with fiber which can keep you feeling full longer. I love making a big pot of this soup on a Sunday, and portioning it into individual bowls so I can heat a quick lunch during the week!

Dried beans are a fantastic ingredient to stock up on from the store – they are inexpensive (between $1-2 per pound), have a long shelf-life, and are so versatile. Keeping a well-stocked pantry makes it easy to come up with delicious and tasty meals using a few staples you can rotate.

Easy Meal Prep Recipes with Beans

This pinto bean soup is the perfect recipe for  homemade meal prep.  I am a huge fan of meal prepping, batch cooking, and making recipes ahead.  Nothing beats the convenience of cooking once and being able to enjoy homemade meals during the week when I don’t have time. 

I have dozens of tried & true meal prep recipes you can browse through.  With just a little planning and prep, you can have a week’s worth of this pinto bean soup ready in the time it would take to make one portion.  Just batch cook, divide into individual containers, and place in the fridge or freezer for later!  I also made a list of my favorite meal prep products on Amazon that I use weekly. They make cooking easy.

How Do You Make Soup with Pinto Beans?

  1. In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions, garlic, carrots, and sliced jalapeno pepper, and sauté for 6 to 7 minutes until vegetables begin to glisten.
  2. Add the chili powder, cumin, diced tomatoes, vegetable stock, salt, and pinto beans, and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to a simmer, cover, and allow the soup to cook for 20 minutes until the veggies are cooked through.
  3. When soup has finished cooking, stir in the chopped cilantro and lime juice.
  4. Serve with additional cilantro or jalapenos to garnish, enjoy!

As you can see I topped mine with my favorite spicy pickled onions, which take less than 10 minutes to make!

The Best Soup Recipe with Pinto Beans

Soups are staples year-round on our homestead, even in the summer (hello gazpacho)!  Soups are simple to make, are inexpensive and budget-friendly. I love making soup with pinto  beans and spices – the flavor is just fantastic!

Making your own soup from scratch (for yourself or your family) takes comfort food to the next level. Canned soups can be convenient, but they are loaded with sodium, preservatives, and junk. Browse 100+ free homemade soup recipes here for inspiration to simmer!
