      I have to say that I found the flavors lacking as well. I should have tried adding more lime but didn't think of it. Instead I added about 1 cup of tomato salsa and that did the trick. One thing to mention, keep an eye on this and you will have to keep adding water as it cooks. I started with 4 cups of chicken broth and added water as it cooked down. Otherwise you will have a bit of a mess! When the beans were cooked I added another cup of chicken broth plus the salsa and it was still very thick.

      Made & reviewed for ZWT 4 - Kumquat's Kookin' Kaboodles! I usually am not a fan of black beans & find them a little bitter (& weird tasting lol) but this soup turns them into something /i can enjoy! I think there is some kind of chemical breakdown caused by the cola but whatever it is, this is one delicious soup! I halved the recipe & all 4 of us enjpyed this with some homemade bread. Thanks Kimberly for another great recipe:)

      As much as I dislike leaving bad reviews, I didn't like the taste of this one. I added a bunch of other spices to improve the taste, but the texture was good. Thanks for the recipe!
