Cream of Black Bean Soup

There are many places to vary the recipe. It is a very rich soup with the addition of half and half cream, about a quart, at the final addition of vinegar and sherry. The soup is great as it appears above in the recipe without any changes, and gets even better the next day, and the next, in the fridge.
