This was a great-tasting soup - I love the flavor that the bay leaves add. Very simple to put together.

This was excellent. I used black beans and added a can of diced tomatoes with chilies and spices and a can of corn. Am making it again today. We had our son and daughter-in-law over that evening and both loved it and wanted the recipe. I have sent it to a couple of other people. This is easy and really tastey.
