Parts-from-the-Morgue Soup Halloween Bean Recipe

AKA: Black Bean Soup, serves 12-15.

Various plastic novelty body parts, washed and dried
8 cans of black beans, drained
3/4 lbs. bacon, chopped
1 head of garlic, peeled and minced
1 C. chopped celery
2 large carrots, peeled and diced
1 1/2 C. diced yellow onion
2 jalapeƱos, seeded and minced (use gloves!)
2 bay leaves
1 1/2 tbsp. ground cumin
2 tbsp. chili powder
2 tsp. dried oregano
1-2 tsp. cayenne
1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1/2 C. dark beer
5-8 C. beef broth (or chicken)
Kosher salt, to taste

1. In a large soup pot, cook bacon until browned and crisp.

2. To bacon and drippings, add your garlic, celery, carrots, onions, jalapeƱo, and bay leaf.

3. Cook over medium heat until veggies are tender, about 10 minutes.

4. Stir in cumin, chili powder, oregano, cayenne, and pepper. Cook about 1 minute.

5. Add beans, beer, and the minimum amount of broth. Add salt to taste.

6. Cook uncovered 1 1/2 to 2 hours, adding more broth as needed to reach your desired consistency. Taste and adjust spices halfway through cook-time, if needed.

7. Serve this creepy Halloween recipe in its cooking pot, adding novelty plastic teeth, etc., after soup has cooled slightly.

* Don't use plastic parts that will easily melt, i.e. very thin and small items! Used in the photo are novelty teeth for a Halloween costumes which are fairy thick and sturdy and as they're meant to be worn in your mouth you know they're food-safe.
* The finger pictured is a witch's finger cookie. In the breads and cookies sections you can find recipes for witch fingers, monster toes and all sorts of parts that are edible and can be added to the soup or served on the side.
* Serve with tortilla chips (labeled "Deep Fried Skin Slivers") or cornbread and some sour cream (labeled "Goblin Pus").
