Soupy Black Beans

"This recipe comes from an Everyday Food magazine. I cut the recipe in half when it's just DH and me. Great for a BBQ or a cold night. Serve with a dollop of sour cream. You can also try adapting this for the microwave."

    Wow this is very good & very easy. I needed a quick soup for dinner one night and found this. I was a little apprehensive about this because it seemed to watery but after simmering for 30 minutes and adding the sour cream it was so good. My husband said this is a keeper. BTW I substituted chicken broth for some of the water. Will make this again. Thanks Hadice

    Very tasty and couldn't be much easier! Wasn't sure when to add the chiles so added in step 3. Used an extra Tbsp chiles and reduced water to 3 cups. Made a great lunch with a cheese sandwich on the side. Thanks for the recipe!

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

<p>I have been married to my amazing husband for 8 wonderful years. We added a baby boy to the mix in March '08 with another just added March '10. We have two adorable rescue dogs, a chihuahua/min pin mix and a yorkie/westie mix. I have been an ovo-lacto vegetarian for 14 years. <br /> <br />After moving to our fourth state in a year, we have finally settled in Texas. I don't know how I like all the rain and the human-sized bugs, but we really enjoy the area we have chosen to live in. Being a vegetarian in this part of the country is HARD. No one quite gets it. <br /> <br />I love testing my zaar recipes on DH. When he loves something he exclaims, Where did you get this recipe?!? and of course, my answer is always the same. <br /> <br /><img src=http://www.enviro-tote.com/imagesNew/stockart/bannerVeggie.gif alt= /> <br /> <br />My ratings system: <br />5***** <br /> I would glady serve this to guests, or make it and secretly eat it all by myself. <br />4**** <br /> Great recipe. Liked enough to print out and place in my permanent cookbook. <br />3*** <br /> Recipe not quite for me, but others might like it. Could be more to my liking with a few modifications. <br />2** <br /> Didn't like. Possible ingredient errors in recipe. Probably wouldn't use again. <br />1* <br /> Really didn't like. Would never use again. <br /> <br />#NOTE# <br />If I review any recipes containing meat, it is a recipe I prepared and DH reviewed. <br /> <br /><img src=http://www.enviro-tote.com/imagesNew/stockart/bannerVeggie.gif alt= /> <br /> <br />Little Italy, San Diego <br /><img src=http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e342/hadice/Cool/LittleItaly.jpg alt= /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/berriesblinkie.gif alt= /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/untitled_1.jpg alt= /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/200_artistrichardneuman-art-prints_.jpg alt= /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/untitled.jpg alt= /><img src=http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/Game%20Room%20Banners/AM%20Banners/KBparticipation.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3316/3345270671_dd30334798.jpg alt= /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/AMpageSticker.jpg alt= /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/Aug09PaperSwapSticker.jpg alt= /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/Animation6.gif alt= /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/PACsticker-Adopted.jpg alt= /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b2/kiwidutch/my3chefs2009final-1.jpg alt= /></p>
