    This is a good basic recipe. I like to add other things to spice it up and give it more of a healthy punch. I saute up about 1/2 c. each of onion, celery and carrots in a bit of butter. Then I add 1 tbsp of cumin. I blend it & add another can of beans to give it a few chunks. Serve w/ sour cream. - 2/2/11

    Swapped vegetable broth for chicken broth to align with my vegan life style. I'm a garlic lover so I added about a teaspoon of minced garlic and two tsp cumin. So good, and so quick to make. - 3/11/12

    Loved it! I made it with dry black beans, and it took 30 minutes to cook them in pressure cooker (I used about 1.5 cups dry beans + 4 cups water + 1 chicken bouillon cube). After the beans were cooked, I added some chili pepper paste, the salsa and 2 cloves of garlic, then puréed in Cuisinart. YUM! - 9/1/10

    Awesome, used low sodium chicken broth which cut the sodium drastically. Topped with 2% Greek yogurt instead of sour cream and you wouldn't know the difference. Husband loved it and he is picky. Will keep it on the dinner rotation for sure. - 9/23/11

    Great recipe! I adapted the recipe: I added about a cup cut bell pepper and half the beans to the pot. I let the pot simmer for about 10 minutes then I pureed the mix in a blender, leaving it slightly chunky. I put the mix and rest of the beans into the pot to simmer 10 more minutes. Yum! - 9/9/12

    Absolutetly fabulous. The cilantro is the key. A small dollop of PLAIN fat free greek yogurt gives a tang like sour cream but without all the calories. - 12/28/12

    Yum! I had this with dinner last night. The flavor is really good for just 3 ingredients! It was a bit too soupy for me as a black bean dish. I will just use less broth next time. Thank you so much for sharing! - 1/16/13
