  • This soup is very tastey, indeed! I used the beans I had in my pantry--black beans, tri-colored, and red. Also, I drained and rinsed the last can of beans so maybe that's why I only got six 1-1/2 cup servings instead of eight? Anyway, I live alone so that was no biggy. :) - 11/10/13

  • Very Good. Everyone enjoyed. Cut back on some of the spices for the kids and did not use cumin, used 1/8 tsp red pepper flakes, 1 clove of crushed garlic, only pureed the one can of beans, used frozen corn (cooked), and thickened with a little corn starch. Salt and pepper to taste. - 2/12/12

    This is pretty tasty! I think next time I would only puree one of the cans of beans.
    I prepared it as the recipe called for, but then I put it all in the crock pot and let it simmer for a few hours. I served it with cornbread. I'd make this again, and maybe add jalepenos for more spice. - 3/29/09
