Black Bean Soup for Two Recipe

Publisher Photo
I cooked for two people for the first 7 years of my marriage. Today, I'm a stay-at-home mom with a toddler, but I still appreciate small-scale recipes. I like to serve this zesty soup with tortillas topped with melted cheese.—Wendy Anderson, Santa Rosa, California

One of my favorite soups

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 2, 2012

Great soup! I added 2 diced carrots, another can of black beans and a can of chicken broth (in addition to the beef broth). I wanted to stretch this to last for leftovers. I also slightly puréed the soup so it would be slightly thicker. Instead of adding the lime and Tabasco to the soup I served it with the soup, along with some sour cream, so that we could each add to our own taste.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 19, 2011

I like to make soup and take them to work for lunch. Glad this recipe only makes two serving. It smells wonderful cooking but the taste reminds me of something from a can. Hard to understand why this would be rated high or win anything.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 21, 2011

It was excellent, especially with crackers. Next time, however, I would add only 1 tsp of lime juice, not the called for 1-2 TBSP. I used 1 TBSP and it tasted strongly of lime- it wasn't as strong after the first few bites, but a little more lime flavor than I would have liked.
