I wanted to try something new - and this was it! It is soooo good - not sure what I thought it would taste like - but my DH and I loved it! And soooo easy too! A definite keeper! Thanks!

I was glad to find a recipe that used pumpkin and black beans together, but the combination of ingredients never came together in a miraculous synergy of deliciousness -- I could still taste the separate ingredients and they didn't get along that well. Ah well, as Grampa Fluffernutter used to say, if we all liked the same thing, everyone would be after your grandma!

Mmmmmm,and mmmmm again! Delicious and comforting on a cold autumn evening. Easy to prepare by using my immersion blender. Used canned tomatoes with mild chilies. This will be added to my autumn/winter soup repertoire. Forgot to garnish with the pumpkin seeds! Ms._bold, thank you for posting this soup recipe! cg ;)

Yummy!! I did alter things a bit to accomodate what I had in the cupboard. I used red wine vinegar and only one can of beans (oops!). The tomatoes were italian-seasoned, but that didn't seem to matter. I skipped the first step and just used my hand blender to puree everything. What a lovely thick texture! I served it with quesadillas and put some of the leftovers in the freezer since I'm the only one in the house that will eat this. More for me! Thanks for sharing. :)

Wonderful soup! I agree, it is made with things most people already have on hand, which makes it more wonderful. I made it just as written except I used my hand-held immersion blender to partially puree it at the end of cooking. I loved the queso fresco garnish! I'll make this again. Thanx for posting the recipe.
