Reviews for Simple Black Bean Soup
"Nice recipe. I am the only one in my family who likes black bean soup, so I made it on a night my husband was gone and fed the kids something else. I didn't use the blender, just simmered on the stove. Added crushed red papper flakes. Added a little light sour cream, salsa, and mozzarella cheese as a garnish. Great meal for me with some leftovers."
"So good!! I added spinach in for the last few minutes which was a great addition! Very fast too."
