Great taste, on the hot side. I followed this recipe pretty closely (only had 1 red bell pepper so I added cherry tomatoes and celery to make up the rest of the 2 cups; didn't have jalapeno so I used a little chipotle in adobo sauce - which I thought was great). I put it in the slow cooker for 8 hrs on LOW but it came out watery. So I put it back for 4 hrs on HIGH with the lid slightly off - and it came out just the right, stew-like consistency for me. I'd like to try it with different peppers and see how it turns out. Thanks for this tasty recipe.
Caribbean Black Bean Soup
A little of this spicy soup goes a long way, so it's best when served as an appetizer soup. If you want to decrease the heat, seed the jalapeños.
