Recipe by Dave5003

This is actually two soups that can be served separately or together. Each soup serves four; combined, the two serve eight.

This recipe is from Boudros on the River Walk in San Antonio and appeared in Bon Appetit magazine. For the original black bean soup part of the recipe you can look it up on Epicurious. I just think recipes should be credited.
