Quick and EXCELLENT! I sometimes use pintos and always add cumin to make it taste more Tex Mex. To make it healthier, rinse the beans first, reducing sodium. I also often blend my own beans rather than buy refried to cut back on salt. My family loves it! Am also trying to add corn and reduce beans to see if is just as good.

Amazeballs! I added 1/2 cup of espresso and a dash of cinnamon to make it an Espresso Black Bean soup ... very easy to make vegan too. It's really filling!

I added smoked chicken, a can of diced tomatoes, garlic, and cumin...yum, yum.

This is a super fast/easy and hearty soup. Surprisingly low in calories especially if you use fat free black beans. I add avocado chunks and "tamed" jalapenos (by Merzetti) along with the sour cream and cilantro as garnish and serve with tostada chips. I also substitute fresh pico de gallo from grocery store for the salsa.
