Reviews for Home-Style Black Bean Soup
"The whole family enjoyed it and that is really saying something! I did blend up all of it except 1 can of beans and the onion and garlic."
"It was much better than it sounded or looked. My husband really liked it. It is a bit spicy."
"Really, really good!!! My husband loved it and that's always my goal! I used only half the cumin (I don't think I could have eaten it with the full amount... would have been too spicy!) and I blended almost two full cans of the beans instead of one. Also threw a little dried cilantro in the pot. I will definitely be making this again!"
"I absolutelylove this soup! I used reduced sodium chicken broth instead of the regular brothh. Since I like my soup to be on the thicker side, I don't blend the beans with the chicken broth before adding them. I put everything into the pot and at the end, I use a blender stick to blend the soup. That way you can make the soup as thick as you want."
"Quick, easy, healthy and delicious!"
