We didn't love this recipe. Even though it calls for 2 large onions, I only used 2 small ones and it was way too much onion and cumin. I might try it again making some adjustments.

Excellent - a very tasty, well rouned soup. Didn't change anything except added a Tbls of SMOKED Paprika (yummo!) with the cumin and season salt at the end. Thanks!

I thought this was THE BEST soup I've had in a long time. I too thought the cumin would be too much; however it was really what made the soup taste so good! I am taking leftovers to work tomorrow to share with a couple of co-workers who smelled it while I was eating and lunch. I made a large pot and will have some to put in the freezer for another rainy day.

This was very good and everyone loved it. I would definitely make this again with a couple changes: saute the onions first (they were a little too cruncy for my liking). I would also not drain the beans to give it a darker color. That's all! It was great!

Made this on the stove top and added the garli-sauteed chicken bites just before serving. Nicely flavored beans, Amanda Beth.

This was a pretty good dish. I did add corn and I also used chicken from a whole fryer instead of chicken breasts. I would definitely make it again.

Great soup. Don't be afraid of the spices. I used half the spices to begin with and ended up adding more toward the end of cooking time. I used canned beans rinsed and drained and frozen corn. I will make this again.

This is one of my favorites. I make it stoptop since I live with a nervous nelly who won't let me leave a crockpot on with no one home. I use two cans of black beans instead of dried and simmer for 20 minutes.

This was a nice flavorful soup that was very filling. I more or less prepared a half recipe of this, using a 15 ounce can of black beans, 2 cups of cooked chopped chicken, and half of all the remaining ingredients.
