This soup was not as complex as I would have liked. I added 2 Tblsp brown sugar, scant 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, and 3 side shakes of cardamom (from the side of the shaker, not holding the shaker upside down). The cardamom made the difference. My daughter will like it but I don't think I'll make it again. I have yet to find a simple soup recipe that I would serve to guests.

I was curious about this recipe. My three guys loved it. I did too. So simple, so tasty. The only thing I did different was to add another can of black beans. Love the cheddar cheese on top.

Made this on a snowy, windy day. Used large can of pumpkin and 1 can of Rotelle. I LOVED it and hubby added some sour cream to take a bit of heat away. This will be a "go to" recipe that I can do from the pantry!

Very good! A little extra salt really helped the flavor.

This was pretty good but the flavor was lacking so I added two shakes of cinnamon and one shake of garam masala. This made a big difference to me. Also I only had about 6 oz of beans. Because of the watery consistency I mixed corn starch with water and added it to the soup. I used tomatoes with regular chilies, but will use the mild ones next time. I will be making this again.

Really tasty and quick. Top with shredded cheddar cheese.

Unfortunately I don't understand the rave reviews. It was very bland to me even after adding nutmeg & cayenne pepper. It had heat but no flavor :(

This soup is amazing! I like very thick soups so I usually add extra black beans. Sometimes I add some cooked chicken. It also works well to mix it up in the evening and put it in the crock pot in the morning for a great lunch at work.

This soup is delicious and is so easy to make. I made it exactly as indicated, using Rotel's diced tomatoes with mild chilies since my husband doesn't like anything real spicy. I normally keep these ingredients on hand in my pantry, so it will be easy to whip up at a moments notice. It was a real hit and I'm going to add this to my regular recipe rotation.
