"A really tasty and quick-to-fix soup! My only changes were to use only 32 oz. of chicken broth and to double the amount of cumin (one of our favorite spices). This recipe will be made often this winter."

"This is a yummy recipe, though I do modify just a bit. I only use 2 cans of chicken broth and I puree one can of the black beans for a thicker soup. I sometimes use (turkey) smoked sausage in place of the chicken and I use whatever rice I happen to have, today it's brown rice. Great soup!"

"This soup is really good. Both times I've made it, I haven't had lime juice so I haven't put that in but otherwise, it's delicious. It freezes well, too. I have a seal-a-meal that gets daily use and this is one of the things I use it for. I only make half a batch at a time but it's just my daughter and me so there are left overs and I always freeze them. The first time I wondered if the beans would get weird in the freezer but they didn't. They stayed really nice. Last night when I made it, I added a can of corn and that was really good, too."
