Very chunky soup! Really nice flavour combination- I used a lot of tabasco and it worked really well with the beans and tomatoes. I used a can of black beans and a can of mixed (garbanzo, kidney, black eyed, romano), also canned stewed tomatoes and half a bulb of garlic. Very good, everyone enjoyed it.

If you like garlic and you like beans, this one is for you. I used 2 cans of tomatoes, 4 cloves of garlic and wow was it garlicky! I'm sure using fresh tomatoes would add to the flavour, but its absolutely fine with canned. I used some pinto beans I had in the freezer, butter beans and kidney beans. Will definitely make this again.

I used frozen tomatoes from the garden, 6 cloves of garlinc, 1 can each of Great Northern and Black beans and 2 bullion cubes with water for the stock. I served it over rice and we all liked it. I'm looking forward to trying more variations

This soup has a wonderful combination of flavors! I used all fresh ingredients and used the whole bulb. I added a 1/4 cup of orzo. I used a combination of Northern Beans, Black eyed peas and pink beans. I love the fact that you can easily change the soup by adding different beans.

Super fast & simple since I used canned tomatoes - a big can of whole & a small can of diced & kind of mushed it up a bit. I added canned black beans. This was great & can be different every time just by changing the beans. And it's almost fat free. ;) Thanks, Sista!

This is too easy to be this good! I had to use canned tomatoes but the flavor didn't seem to suffer at all. I also threw in a cup of leftover brown rice and let that heat through, then topped each bowl with crumbled cotijo (kinda a cross between parmesan and feta) cheese. Yummy!

Very tasty soup with a nice little bite. Nice combination with the tomatoes and beans.

this was really good and so easy to make. i used kidney beans and was very liberal with the garlic. the flavors of the worcestershire and tabasco sauces was an interesting addition and worked very well with the flavors.

I was looking for a tomato soup and this one caught my eye as a way to utilize some open leftovers. I used canned diced tomatoes and a can of kidney beans. I had black beans and garbanzos in small containers in the fridge & added those as well. At the end of the cooking time I threw in a cup of cooked small seashell pasta. This soup has a great flavor....don't skimp on the garlic! =)
