First time doing black bean soup in a crock pot. Worked great! I added extra cumin as we love it here. Also had more ham than it called for but it turned out perfect. I had to cook it for about 5 1/2 hours to get the beans as tender as I like them. Served it was some pickled onions on top, hubby loved it!
My family loves this. Both my 2-yo and my 4-yo eat bowls FULL of this. We like it best served "chili" style over some brown rice. Thanks for posting this recipe. Oh, and just wanted to add I find the most success when I do the quick soak method for preparing the black beans before putting them in the crock. So, quick soak the beans, put them in the crock, and cook away for 6 hours on high = perfect for us :)
Yes sir, this is a keeper, TRUE! ABSOLUTELY LOVE Black Bean Soup too! Tasty, deliscious...took a while! Mashed it, then ate it with a smile!
