We liked this but it seemed more like a vegetarian chili. I think the salsa was overpowering. I would like to try it with less salsa and less chicken broth as I was hoping for a bit thicker soup.

LOVED this!! I used Copycat Pace Picante Sauce for the salsa, and otherwise followed the recipe to a the end, though, I threw everything into my crockpot. It has been cooking on low for about 30 minutes, and I just sampled it. Fantastic! To everyone out there looking for an amazing black bean soup recipe, you need not look any further!!

Our whole family loved this! I used medium Pace picante sauce and doubled the red chili flakes. It was so spicy! but good with greek yogurt stirred in.
