For very little effort, this yields quite a healthy, tasty soup. I used a good-quality, fresh salsa and I think that's very important. I simmered everything first and then used my immersion blender right in the pot. I used all the garnished listed. Great lunch. Thanx!

I enjoyed this soup and it is very fast to make when you are short on time, plus it's a great source of fiber. I used LaVictoria Salsa Suprema and lite sour cream. First time I've eaten black bean soup that uses chicken broth and I find that I prefer using beef broth as it makes it a little richer. This is a good go-to recipe though when you don't have beef broth on hand.
