This was very economical and good for a bean lover. But, it needed quite a bit of spice. We added chicken broth and a lot of salt and pepper. Twice the dill it called for. But, for a cheap soup, it was good.

This soup was OK but it was missing something - what, I don't know. I used all of the listed ingredients and even added some garlic and chicken bouillion but even that did nothing to liven up the taste.
