    Sharon123's Note:

    This soup is really yummy and healthy too! This makes a main dish accompanied by tortillas, or crusty french bread and a nice salad!Caribbean, Cuban, Mexican and Spanish influences! It really is best if the beans are soaked overnight.And depending on your cooker, the soup might need to be cooked longer.

      As with one of the previous reviewers, my beans were still hard at the end of the projected cooking time, but I thought it was because of my failure to correctly read the recipe. I did not cook the first three hours on high but instead on low. Therefore, I cooked longer until the beans were soft. By that time, the soup was thick enough that I did not have to puree half of it. In addition, I did not have lentils, so I increased the amount of rice (brown) by 1/4 cup. Both my husband and I thought the soup delicious. And as we did not use the suggested sour cream as a topper, it is great nutritionally. It freezes well also.

      My beans were hard and undercooked even though I followed the directions as written, except I only used 1 tsp salt and eliminated both the carrot and oregano because I was out of both ingredients. For better results, I probably should have soaked the beans overnight instead of using the method suggested in the recipe.
