This was a very tasty, filling soup. I did make some slight adjustments. My husband is one of those where cilantro has a soapy flavor so I left that out, I added some chopped green chiles, and since I didn't have any chipotle chili powder, I added cayenne pepper. I think next time I make it, I'll add a can of drained corn also. Thanks for the recipe!
It was fine, but as there are other recipes which we find more satisfying, we won't use this one again.
This is a favorite of mine. Quick, easy and tasty. I eat it with a fat free soft flour tortilla for dunking and sometimes sprinkle thawed frozen peas on along with the cheese. Always makes 4 servings for me which I eat for lunch throughout the week.
Excellent healthy, quick soup recipe. I followed some of the prior suggestions and added 1/2 chopped red onion to the sautee stage. I only needed 1 cup of water instead of 2. I also added 1/2 tsp cumin and 1 tsp dried cilantro since i didn't have any fresh on hand. I used a 16 oz jar of salsa instead of 8 oz (which might explain why i only needed 1 c. water). I'll definitely make this again.
This was really tasty and will be a regular at our house.
My modifications: 1) Used fresh garlic and diced red onion in the saute stage; 2) Used more salsa and also added a can of diced jalapenos; 3) Topped with queso fresco (a crumbly, salty cheese similar to feta), sliced avocado, cilantro, hot sauce, and diced fresh tomato; Despite my modifications the soup was awfully bland, a consequence of using canned beans instead of dried. But I'd still recommend it as a healthy, satisfying soup, ideal for a quick lunch or easy weeknight dinner.
This soup was tasty but not spectacular. Also, I followed the recipe exactly and it did not make four 1 and 1/4 cup servings. I like to make soup and put it in individual containers to bring to work for lunch during the week. I carefully measured out three servings but the fouth serving was less than a full cup.
I discovered this recipe while searching for a meatless soup for a Lent Soup Supper at church. I was skeptical that a black bean soup could taste good without meat. It is absolutely one of the top five soups I've ever made, and the easiest and quickest, to boot. Run - don't walk - to make this recipe! I used a teaspoon of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce that I'd pureed in place of the powder. I served it with saltines, but next time I'll use tortilla chips.
Very good, used 1/2 of a finely chopped jalapeno instead of chipotle powder just because I don't like the smoky taste. Very easy weekday meal.
This is one of my go-to recipes for a quick dinner. It's easy and delicious! Sometimes I add some cumin for more flavor.
