Reviews for Hearty Black Bean Soup
"Loved this! I used dried beans but didn't change anything else. The cumin gave it great authentic flavor! I will definitely save this recipe for future use!"
"So, how is it that black bean soup has no fiber?"
"My family loved this recipe. The only thing i changed was the garlic, i used two cloves instead of four. I served it with wild rice and it was very delicious!"
"We love this soup! The crockpot makes it so easy and nice to come home to on a cold day! I modify it by using dried beans I soak overnight, and I usually double it so it lasts a few days. Yummy!"
