I made exactly as stated. Tasty.... but not good enough to make for company. I agree - it would be great with a little cilantro. Makes for a quick and easy lunch. I feel this is 4 servings rather than 2.

This is a really good and simple soup! I loved the creamy texture; not too thin and not too thick. I thought by the ingredients that it would need some major spicing up, but I actually was pretty happy with it as is; I just added some cumin. Instead of the food processor, I put the onions, beans and cream cheese in a soup pot and simmered them for awhile, then I just used my hand-held immersion blender to puree. I didn't puree it to complete smoothness-just my preference. I garnished with light sour cream, chopped tomatoes and chives. Cilantro would be good in this too. Thanx for a terrific and easy soup recipe. I'll make this often!
