"I made this last night and it was so quick and easy and delicious!! I used 2 cans of Trader Joe's black beans, so it only took about 20 minutes to cook. I let it sit on the stove on warm for about 45 minutes total, and it was fantastic. Will definitely make again!!"
"Nice and filling..... and healthy, too! I made this as written using canned black beans (3 cups). This was super tasty, but I felt it was too liquidy. I think 6 cups of broth was way too much for the recipe. Next time I would decrease the broth and/or maybe puree some of the soup. I garnished with sour cream, cilantro and the lime juice. Yummy! Thanx for sharing!"
"My whole family liked this soup a lot. I used canned beans, and left out the corainder (beacuse I didn't have any). I did add a can of diced tomatoes. "
"I was very skeptical about this recipe initially, making it only to use up a small amount of both key ingredients I had laying around. It was actually really good and even better the second day. I agree with the other reviewer in that the lime juice definitely adds a great flavor (although it was good without too!)."
"very impressive soup. simple recipe to follow, used all organic ingredients but found i hadno coriander or cumin as i thought i had. i did have some curry and looked up curry on this site and found it had both coriander and cumin in it so added 1/2 tsp of that and hoped for the best. it was outstanding. i used canned beans as well and did not drain them before adding which i think gave the soup a nice consistency. the lime should not be left out as it gives it such a nice finish at the end. thank you so much for sharing this easy and delicious recipe."
" WOW! Great flavor and easy. I used 3 cans beans instead of dried. DH wants his Black bean soup with this recipe from now on. Great combination of flavor. Thanks for sharing"
"I went with the canned beans option. I liked the soup quite a bit but found the spices a bit strong for me. I'll definitely make it again but cut back a bit on the spices and maybe add some garlic as KITTENCAL suggests in her review. Part way through eating, I squeezed my lime slice into the soup and really like what it added."
"We enjoyed this soup, I used one onion and 2 tablespoons garlic sauteed in some butter, also I adjusted the amounts lightly. Thanks for posting akgrown!...Kitten:)"
