YUMMY!!! I am on a strict cleansing diet and this hit the spot!!! I only pureed half of the soup because I like the texture of whole beans in my soup. Otherwise followed the recipe and it was great! Making a double batch tonight!

Warm, tasty soup! I made this as written, with green onions as garnish. It's not as "acidic" as the black bean soups with tomatoes, but it still has ample spiciness. Bonus for being lowfat and healthy! Woo-Hoo! Thanx for a yummy soup!

I've made this soup several times--my husband and I love it! I like the soup a little chunky, so I don't keep it in the blender for too long. It's also good topped with cilantro. Thanks for sharing!

Delicious and healthy. Some like it hot, and so I added two pinches of cayenne pepper and two squirts of tabasco. I used an immersion blender to blend the soup. It's a handheld "stick" of a blender that you submerge in the soup and blend it. Faster and easier to cleanup than a blender. I use soups like this one to rationalize the purchase!

This was super yummy! I made quite a few changes though...I halved the recipe, used only one can of black beans, left out the carrots, added cayenne pepper and added a dash of liquid smoke. I only pureed about 3/4 of the soup to leave it a little chunky. I topped it off with sour cream and a lotttt of crushed tortilla chips. Thanks for posting!

My family quite enjoyed this recipe although it lacked heat for DH. I also think it needs a little something to kick it up and I'm not a huge fan of extra spicy food. I added extra celery, onions, and carrots since I was chopping anyway. Unfortunately I don't have access to a blender right now, so I couldn't process the soup. While still tasty, I would definitely blend next time. It didn't make a huge pot like I was expecting, but it was nice not to have to eat it for days and days. Served with brown rice. . .delicious and nutritious!

Very easy, very delicious soup! I cooked this a day ahead and pureed the following day (cold). Reheated some for lunch today and it was excellent! I left out the celery (eww) and added a chopped jalapeno (will add more next time). Served with sour cream and cheddar cheese. Thanks soooo much for posting chia! Yum!
