This was superb. Thanks for the great recipe. It reminded me of the Cheesecake Factory's black bean soup. I added a couple extra cans of black beans to make it a bit thicker. But no other changes made. This is a keeper.

Delicious! Halved the recipe and used cayenne and adobo since I didn't have any Tabasco. Served with tiny diced red onion and grated cheese on top, with cornbread on the side. DH really loved it!

This really passed the taste test in my house!!! I did use canned black beans (because I am lazy).

This soup was awesome, simple, and inexpensive - a great combination! I pre-cooked the beans in my pressure cooker this morning (with some garlic and other spices), then threw all the rest of the ingredients in my crock pot. It smelled great all day, DH came home and said "MMM, when's dinner??" We like it spicy, so I used 1 can of Rotel and 1 can of regular diced tomatoes. Next time, I'll probably use 2 RoTel. A little Frank's at the table with a dollop of sour cream and cheddar, with a plate of warm "Prize-winning Crusty Rolls"... perfection! Oh, and this made a TON of soup, so plenty for lunch tomorrow, too!

This is a fabulous recipe! It's delicious, nutritious and inexpensive. What more could anyone ask? This has become a favorite Saturday lunch at my house. One word of caution, though - this recipe makes A LOT of soup. Really, it's more like ten to twelve servings, rather than six. That's not a bad thing, though, because the leftovers are great, too.

I actually made this as a take-home meal for my DS, he absolutely loved it, I increased the garlic and also added in 2 jalapeno peppers, and made the soup a day in advance to blend the flavors further, great recipe Jeri, thank you!...Kitten

Excellent soup on a cold windy day. I was out of thyme so I used a spice blend that had thyme in it. Also left out the tabasco as the kids won't eat it. Used my immersion blender and cooked it longer then called for as I was doing other things. We swirled a little fat free sour cream and a little grated cheddar into it and ate it with Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Biscuits. Everyone, including the two kids, ate their whole bowls. Thanks for a great one!

EXCELLANT!!! The recipe is so simple, I didn't think that it could be THAT good and flavorful...It exceeded my expectations! This recipe is perfect as it is, and it's a rarity when I don't change a recipe in one way or another. Thank you for posting!!

Ooh Nelly...this is good! No special trips to the grocery story necessary for this one, everything was right in my pantry. I used my immersian blender instead of a regular one and it worked perfectly. This soup warmed me up on this chilly fall day.

Yummy and tasty! I liked the partially pureed texture. The thyme was a nice flavor addition. I served it with a dallop of sour cream and sprinkled with cheddar cheese. I will make this again; thanx!
