Premium Black Bean Soup

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Bill Woodward

A very good, simple vegetarian black bean soup. Originally came from back of a box of Premium Saltines (hence the name). The recipe originally called for chicken broth, but I use vegetable broth to make it vegetarian.

I'm so glad I tried this... I'm not a salsa lover but was looking for an easy soup and I do love black beans. The first day it seemed just OK but the next day it had become outstanding! I'd make sure to give it a day or two for the flavors to blend.... It was so easy to make even my husband could do it! Thanks Bill
