Black Bean Soup
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Cook: 1-3/4 hours
Makes12 servings (3 quarts)
5 stars, the way I made it; 2 stars for the creator's version. If one will look at the amount of water needed for 1# of beans (6 cups), it's evident that 7 cups for 2# is far too little. I went to a tried/true black bean soup recipe (uses 1#) and increased the following: cumin-1 Tbsp; chili powder-1 Tbsp; oregano-1 Tbsp; water-11 cups total but really needs one more. The increased spices, plus oregano, make it more a Cuban version. Try it!
Very good soup! Had to comprise on the recipe since I didn't have enough beans, chilies or any sausage, but my adlib version was great. Hubby raved and my son enjoyed it! Definitely making again, might even add corn the next time.
Took a chance on reviews and made this for a group of friends and all I got were compliments and when would I be making it again. Can't be beat serving it out in a backyard kitchen on a crisp night,
i tried this soup, very good the cumin gives a great taste
