    Nickeletta's Note:

    I love black beans and sweet potatoes... this is a wonderful blend of flavors. I like to cook this in the crockpot but it can also easily be done on the stovetop.

      Fabulous soup! I don't understand why others thought it was boring because we thought the flavors were wonderful! But to each their own, right? I low-boil simmered it on the stovetop (med heat for my stove) for 30 minutes and it was perfectly done. I also toasted the spices with the onions and garlic in the last minute or so of sauteeing. It didn't even need the sour cream, but that added a nice rich dimension (I didn't add any but DH did and I tried his). Even the baby loved it - and there is definitely a nice layering of spice. A+ thanks, Lysa! We will be making this often!!

      We made a bunch of changes, most of which were suggested here. I sauteed two small onions with the spices (eyeballed) in a skillet, and then added a carton of chicken broth, the tomatoes, three sweet potatoes (unpeeled), and some hot sauce. We forgot the corn, but added some leftover ham, which I would highly recommend. You could also use sausage. I simmered it for about an hour, and then saved the soup for the next day. Delicious.

      I came back to give this an additional star - it reheats so well and makes a lovely lunch. I made a half recipe on the stovetop and found this recipe to be both simple and tasty. I added a liberal amount of hot sauce and enjoyed it very much. I've tried it with and without sour cream and enjoyed it both ways...would have added lime if I had it.
