      This soup is excellant as written. We really enjoyed it with sour cream and some freshly chopped cilantro. Great on this cold evening.

      This recipe is fantastic! The only change I made was additional cumin and a bit of coriander. Other reviewers found that the beans did not cook in the alloted time; I didn't have that problem, just make sure you soak them first. My husband and 6 year old couldn't get enough! This will definitely be a regular in our rotation.

      We really liked this recipe. I used canned beans (2 cans) and these worked out fine. Flavors were very nice. We ate this as a soup with the cheese sprinkled on top. Made for the CRAZE-E Cooking contest finalists, October 2008.
