Excellent flavor. Not really a traditional black bean soup, more just like soup with black beans in it, but very good. I started this on the stove top and then transferred to a slow cooker so it could simmer on low for a few hours. I used a smoked beef sausage and beef stock instead of the hot Italian sausage and vegetable broth. I think I would like a slightly thicker texture to the broth, so next time I might add less or add an additional can of black beans, pureed.

This was such an excellent soup. The flavors were so delicious. I loved the spiceness from the hot italian sausages. I couldnt find sodium reduced broth so I just eliminated the extra salt and it worked out perfect. I let it simmer for about 3 hours and it made the kitchen smell real good. I used the canned stewed tomatoes since fresh tomatoes just don't taste that good at this time of year. We both enjoyed the soup for lunch the next day. I was just telling my Mum how good this soup was and she wants the recipe so she can try it. Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipe John.

Other than preparing the black beans from dried, I made no changes to the recipe. The soup will be in my keeper file. We loved the spicy flavor and it is a perfect soup for cool weather. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
