LOVED this!! I used Copycat Pace Picante Sauce for the salsa, and otherwise followed the recipe to a tee...in 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.
Easily a 5 star either as written or with my following additions: I added about 1 cup frozen corn, 1 can mild green chili peppers, and, added about half again the amount of onion and garlic. When serving, I top with a sharp cheddar cheese, sour cream, thinly sliced green onions or minced yellow onion, crushed tortilla chips, a generous squeeze of fresh lime juice and fresh cilantro roughly chopped. (In that order.) We like to use buttered corn tortillas for scooping up the juices. It should be noted that this soup is every bit as good....if not better....the next day when the flavors have had a chance to meld. Of course only top when ready to serve.
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.
I loved this soup! I had pinto beans that I had cooked earlier in the week, so I used those. I also added about 1/2 c corn to the mixture. I will make this often as it is economical and very satisfying. Thanks for sharing.
My husband loved the soup! I added a pinch of sugar to combat the tomato acid, but followed it to a T from there. I made cornbread, but my own personal preference would be Cuban bread to dip in the soup. Easy to make and easy on the waistline. Thanks, Carole in Orlando
This recipe was so simple and fast, but most importantly, it was delicious! Love it! I used a can of diced tomatoes with chiles in place of the salsa. I also added a little salt as my pot was a little bland. Will definitely make again and again!
It doesn't get any better or easier than this ! My boys thought they hated black beans, but they were eating this up.
This is such a delicious black bean soup full of flavor. I have made this several times, and it is a great source of protein and is wonderful on a cold day. Thank you for sharing.
This is the best soup! I haven't actually made it yet but enjoyed it with my family last week when someone else made it. it was so good! I topped mine with shredded cheese and sour cream while DH added crushed tortilla chips and the same toppings. even my four year old ate it!
