This soup was so tasty! I love salt, so I didn’t use the sodium free beans and even added some extra salt to taste. I also used canned corn instead of frozen corn and added the juice of one lime since the recipe suggested serving with lime wedges. The lime gives it a great flavor! So tasty and healthy!

I was excited to try a recipe that looked so healthy and flavorful, but this was a huge disappointment. My entire family could barely gag it down.
