"My sister made this for me because I didn't know if I liked black beans or not. I do. They aren't my favorite food, but I like them enough to make this soup for myself."

"I have made this soup several times and love it. However, I added more hot sauce, a small can of black olives, and a small can of sliced mushrooms. I think it would be good with some fresh portabello mushrooms instead."

"I have made other black bean soup recipes, but I keep coming back to this one. It is my all-time favorite. I sometimes put shredded chicken and a drained small can (or fresh) mushrooms in it. The flavor is wonderful!"
