Wonderfully simple to prepare and oh, so tasty! Black bean soup is a favorite and this recipe hits the spot! I prepared as directed, changing nothing. I served with chopped tomatoes, sliced green onion and a sprinkling of a Mexican Blend Cheese. Thank you, NELady! UPDATED: I sometimes combine 2 cups of shredded roast pork to the soup which makes a fantastic addition.
