surprisingly real good black bean soup

i was experimenting with some different things and this turned out awesome and i thought i'd share it (and keep it somewhere for later use):

~1 lb. hamburger
1 can black beans
1 can mushroom soup
1 can corn
2 cans tomatoes + spicy green chiles
3 sticks of celery, chopped
1 handful baby carrots, chopped
sprinkled in some dried chopped onions, maybe a teaspoon+
sprinkled in some dried chopped red chile peppers, maybe a teaspoon+
i used all the liquids in all the cans and also added:
~1 1/2 can of water

i browned the hamburger while i chopped up the veggies, then put it all together in one of those automatic rice cookers. put it on cook and left it for 20-30 minutes. (until the veggies were soft)
i also made some biscuits to go with it. it's good and it was surprisingly easy to turn out this good.

next time i might put some lemon juice in to zest up the soup. i probably would have used 1 onion and chopped it up too, but i didn't realize we had some still. i also considered putting potatoes in it, but we were out. i definitely would have added green peppers had we had them. (i just add those to everything almost haha)

well, to anyone who tries this, including me in a few weeks: good luck!
