Reviews for Beef 'n' Black Bean Soup
"Tasty, but needs so more spices in my opinion."
"Delicious! I put this in the slow cooker and my girls ate it for dinner and supper. My husband was gone and asked me to save some for him. There was none left."
"This is a long-time family favorite. It is easily modified for both vegetarian and vegan lifestyles, and substituting whole grain wild rice makes it an even healthier "warm up from the inside" meal."
"My grandson asks me to make this soup. It is a favourite."
"This is a great soup recipe. I have made many times. I also made with veg broth for my vegetarian girls."
