    TasteTester's Note:

    I like to serve this hearty soup in October and November, perfect for a fall meal. This recipe came from Gourmet magazine and makes a meaty, spicy and smoky soup, thickened by pureed black beans. Enjoy!

      Wow. Thank you for this recipe! Making it for the second time in a week tonight - my boys and I could not eat enough first time round.
      I did not have any ham in the house but I did have applewood bacon, so I fried up 4 strips of that and then I used 2 tablespoons of the drippings to cook the onions.
      When the soup was finished I added the bacon and I used rice vinegar because that's what I had.
      I also used 1/2 cup cilantro and blended it into my sourcream and served that on the side and everyone added how much they wanted. It was amazing!!!!
      Again, thanks for sharing !!!!

      You definitely have a great soup recipe here! Although I did cut the recipe in half, I followed the ingredients right on down & it came together so nicely! Wonderfully tasty (we thought the bean & pumpkin combo was just great) & this is definitely a soup I'll make again! It's now in my tried-&-true soup file! Thanks so much for posting the recipe!

      This is a winner! I had never tried combing pumpkin and black beans before, and I'm sorry it's taken me this long to do so! This is a wonderful, flavorful soup. I omitted the salt (personal preference). Thanks for sharing!
