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!

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.

It doesn't get any better or easier than this ! My boys thought they hated black beans, but they were eating this up.

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!!

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!

I wanted to have 4 side dish/appetizer size servings, so I used only 1 can of black beans (blended half in the processor) a whole can of fat free chicken broth, and 1/2 cup of chunky salsa. This has become my favorite black bean soup recipe, and I will make it over and over again! Next time, I hope to make it as written as the main course...star of the show! Thanks for posting!

This was fantastic. I don't like a lot of spice, so I did ommit the pepper flakes, and did omit the yogurt. I added a chopped Red Bell Pepper.
