READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Enjolinfam

This sounds like a really good black bean soup...though I love most ALL black bean soup! I'll update once I've tried it. I'm posting this for ZWT 4. This is a recipe I got by Cinda Sanners from her "Soup Buffet" show.

This soup has tons of flavor. The flavor is even better when reheated the next day. Most black bean soups have the predominent cumin and coriander taste. This one has those flavors plus so many other as well.... and they all play nicely together. A cool dallop of light sour cream is a great garnish for serving. Thanx for posting!
