    This soup is very tasty and filling .I too used frozen corn as it is less sweet. Next time I will add chopped celery with the onion. - 12/8/08

  • 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

  • This was very satisfying! The spicier the better so I also added cayenne pepper (to taste) and I had Northern Beans (white) so that is what I used. - 3/2/13
