Reviews for Black Bean and Chicken Soup
"Best soup recipe ever,, today was the fourth time we have made it,, we first used it back in September /12. UUU MMM Good"
"This soup is really good. Both times I've made it, I haven't had lime juice so I haven't put that in but otherwise, it's delicious. It freezes well, too. I have a seal-a-meal that gets daily use and this is one of the things I use it for. I only make half a batch at a time but it's just my daughter and me so there are left overs and I always freeze them. The first time I wondered if the beans would get weird in the freezer but they didn't. They stayed really nice. Last night when I made it, I added a can of corn and that was really good, too."
"I didn't like black beans till I saw this recipe. It has become a family favorite. I make it as often as possible when I need something quick. YUM"
"it was ok"
"A staple in our house. For a richer flavor I use home made chicken broth."
"excellent. To save money, I used tomatoes with green chillies instead of the salsa and dark meat chicken. This is a keeper"
