Many recipes for black bean soup call for cooking the beans with a ham hock to infuse a smoky flavor. Since I don’t always have a ham hock laying around and because I spent many years cooking for vegetarians, I use a combination of chipotle peppers in adobo and ground cumin to add a spicy, smokiness to the soup.
