"I made 4 recipes, hoping for leftovers..NOT. I used 2 cans of beans and 2 cans of refried black beans. To that I added 2 whole cans of corn... a little more than the recipe calls for. It was very good."

"Delicious! I subbed the chicken broth for veggie broth to get a vegetarian meal. The lime juice is a great touch! So simple and easy to make. Perfect for lunches!"

"This is so fabulous & easy. I also double recipe & fix on the stovetop. PLUS, I add 1/2 lb. smoked sausage links (sliced into coins, then quartered). Modified the name to "Black Bart Bean soup". Fans of "Christmas Story" will get it & my kids think the new name is great!"

"Is this correct amount of sodium? It seems very high. Sounds good, but I am supposed to limit sodium."

"Great soup recipe! I made a few modifications: I added 2 cups cooked brown rice, left out the salsa, and used taco seasoning for more flavor. We loved it!"

"I made this tonight on a cold rainy night. It really hit the spot. I added a small can of mild green chilies. I cooked it on top of the stove. And topped it with corn chips. We loved it!"
