Reviews forRefried Bean Soup
"Excellent! I made this with the Mexican Drop Biscuits from the same issue."
"I thought it was good but I think it had too much tomato, I like the idea of Fire Roasted tomatoes."
"Just made this for our lunch....had everything on hand which was convenient. Topped with suggested items and a squeeze of fresh lime juice. Was truly EXCELLENT and only change I made was to use canned FIRE-ROASTED tomatoes. I really was amazed at the flavor so something so simple to throw together. Served it with the NEW Keebler Cornbread & Jalapeno Crackers. They are winners, too."
"This was wonderful! I loved how easy it was to make and it had a great smooth texture. The flavor was phenomenal! I will definitely be making this again!"
