I am not wild about black beans, altho over time, I learned to accept them. But this recipe from "Low Carb Luxury" is really delicious! The beans don't even taste like black beans when you finish this soup. And don't worry if you aren't on a low carb diet, you're gona like this anyhow! Both my husband and I were really surprised, and delighted with this recipe. I didn't have the Eden brand black beans, so I used a brand I already had. As I previously stated, this is not my recipe but was found on the "Low carb luxury" site .
