Black Bean Soup

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Lori K.

Hearty, zesty and satisfying soup. Be sure to add the lime juice. It's the key ingredient to the great taste of this soup.

I liked this. Tastes like most chili. I made a brown rice and put the lime and the cilantro in that and poured the soup on top of it.
