Great soup, mashed up the beans a little before serving.Will definately make this again,
Just made this for dinner and everyone enjoyed it. The only changes I made was to add fresh cilantro and oregano. I used less chili powder and cayenne than the recipe stated because I put in a 1/2 can of chopped hot jalepeno instead of the fresh and that made it hot enough! Thanks for submitting a great recipe!
I have been looking for this recipe for years. Finally found it! I mashed the beans and used it as a dip for tortilla chips. Yum
Super Awesome recipe. We've made it several times for friends and family to rave reviews. My hubby has a co-worker that has made the recipe almost every week since finding it.
I made this with beef broth and cut it in half, as it was just me eating and 3 servings = 3 meals. I'd say it has all the right ingredients for a tasty soup, but somehow ended up just ho hum. It wasn't bad, mind you, but neither was it spectacular. I doubt the chicken vs. beef broth would make any difference, as the flavor of the broth was overpowered 100% by the black beans. I didn't mind eating it, but I won't be making this again. Looking for something with a bit more pizazz in a black bean soup. . . If the left-overs are better than the fresh, then I'll edit this review when I've eaten the soup again. (Soup is funny that way. Sometimes it surprises you on day 2.)
Delicouse! It got spicier as the days went by. Yummy thanks.
wow, this is absolutly awesome!!!!!!!! i did everything as it said except for the hot stuff, my hubby and i dont like too much spice so i toned it down a lot. but everythign else i did as it says, ans i have to say i have been cooking black beans since for ever, but this was defenetly a step up for me!!!! thanks so much for a woderfull one!!!!!!
What a great soup!!!! I added a little extra broth, and shredded a roasted chicken from the deli up to make it a meal for us carnivores ;-) Fabulous!! Topped with fried tortilla strips and sourcream!
I have made this several times, now and I LOVE this soup! I add a little more jalapeno and garlic. Last time, I added some finely diced bell pepper. YUMM
Finally, the recipe I've been looking for! This was excellent and so easy to make. I of course made a few changes. I used 3 cans of black beans. I added the first one whole and mashed the other 2 cans with a potato masher. I then added a can of corn with peppers and a can of tomatoes with green chiles. Perfecto!
