This is absolutely wonderful. The flavors as described are truly robust. I made a few changes for our taste. I only used 8 cups of stock and only 1 box of the black bean and rice mix. (Didn't read the recipe right) Added a 1/2 cup of regular rice. I also left out the bag of frozen corn and black beans. Added a can of corn. Then DH tasted it before I added the chicken and he wanted me to add smoked sausage. So I browned some sausage really well and added it to the soup. Fabulous. Thanks so much for sharing this.
