  • I needed a quick lunch recipe and wanted to use things I already had in the house so I chose this one. Then I found out I was missing a few things. So I substituted pinto beans for the black beans and light yogurt for the whole milke yogurt. I used all walmart brand items and it came out wonderful! - 8/1/08

  • I added a cup of tomato juice to thin it out a bit. It was delicious. Great for those hot days. - 7/6/08

    I'm sorry about the Trader Joe's brand on things - its just that's what I use. I'm sure any can of black beans and any can of corn would work....

    It really is good! It was a fluke - I used a bean dip recipe and I added the whole cans liquid and all + it came out totally soupy - then I realized it was delicious as a cold soup! (PS - I tried it later as a dip, by draining the beans and corn, but I didn't like it as much as the soup!)
