I prepped this soup for four days of lunches and it was delicious! The lime and green onions added a perfect fresh element to the soup. The simplicity was awesome. I will definitely be prepping this again for lunches.

I made 4 recipes, hoping for leftovers..NOT. I used 2 cans of beans and 2 cans of refried black beans. To that I added 2 whole cans of corn... a little more than the recipe calls for. It was very good.

Delicious! I subbed the chicken broth for veggie broth to get a vegetarian meal. The lime juice is a great touch! So simple and easy to make. Perfect for lunches!

This is so fabulous & easy. I also double recipe & fix on the stovetop. PLUS, I add 1/2 lb. smoked sausage links (sliced into coins, then quartered). Modified the name to "Black Bart Bean Soup". Fans of "Christmas Story" will get it & my kids think the new name is great!

Is this correct amount of sodium? It seems very high. Sounds good, but I am supposed to limit sodium.

We made this when both sides of the family came over and everyone loved it! We got requests for a copy of the recipe! (Stove top is best)

Great soup recipe! I made a few modifications: I added 2 cups cooked brown rice, left out the salsa, and used taco seasoning for more flavor. We loved it!

I made this tonight on a cold rainy night. It really hit the spot. I added a small can of mild green chilies. I cooked it on top of the stove. And topped it with corn chips. We loved it!

My family loves this soup. I double the recipe and make it over the stove rather than in the microwave.
