A seriously quick dish, it can satisfy a hungry household in 15 minutes. My family loves sharing this soup with cornbread, or you can add a zesty kick with some Rotel. — Heather Rorex, Winnemucca, Nevada

"Made this on a snowy, windy day. Used large can of pumpkin and 1 can of Rotelle. I LOVED it and hubby added some sour cream to take a bit of heat away. This will be a "go to" recipe that I can do from the pantry!"

"This was pretty good but the flavor was lacking so I added two shakes of cinnamon and one shake of garam masala. This made a big difference to me. Also I only had about 6 oz of beans. Because of the watery consistency I mixed corn starch with water and added it to the soup. I used tomatoes with regular chilies, but will use the mild ones next time. I will be making this again."

"Unfortunately I don't understand the rave reviews. It was very bland to me even after adding nutmeg & cayenne pepper. It had heat but no flavor :("

"This soup is amazing! I like very thick soups so I usually add extra black beans. Sometimes I add some cooked chicken. It also works well to mix it up in the evening and put it in the crock pot in the morning for a great lunch at work."

"This soup is delicious and is so easy to make. I made it exactly as indicated, using Rotel's diced tomatoes with mild chilies since my husband doesn't like anything real spicy. I normally keep these ingredients on hand in my pantry, so it will be easy to whip up at a moments notice. It was a real hit and I'm going to add this to my regular recipe rotation."

"This is a great, quick and nutricious soup! To make it into a hearty meal I added a can of chiicken and mixed veggies. Highly recommend using spicy diced tomatoes and green chiliis such as Rotel. This gives it the much needed kick my family loves! This speedy soup will take about as much time to make as to heat oven and make corn bread sticks. With an additonal tossed salad--- - dinner is on the table in no time!!!"
