My husband asks for this soup all the time, it's amazing! Lots of zip to it without a lot of work. I put it on our regular meal rotation!
Black Bean Soup
From EatingWell: January/February 2010
This is a zippy Southwestern-flavored black bean soup. We make it with canned beans so it comes together in minutes. If you have leftovers, pack them up in individual serving containers for lunch the next day.

..Adding some smoked turkey ( or you can even use ' foturkey) cut into pieces is a great addition to this soup..I also added a can of drained ' Ranch beans' and that really made the flavor pop. I served w heated flour tortillas, and thats dinner!!
I made this recipe just as is and the only thing that I might change is the use of chicken stock instead of water. I really liked this fast and easy soup. This soup is filling and could easily be served as a main dish with some hearty bread and a salad on the side. I will make this recipe again.
I add chopped red bell peppers, large onion to oil. Saute til translucent. Add chicken broth in place of water. I use Walmarts "great Value" black bean and corn salsa...one jar. Also I add 2 cups or more cooked elbow macaroni to the soup. Add a Tbls. more cumin...now you have a great soup!
This soup was very easy to make using the canned beans. I mixed it up a little and used black & Great Northern beans. I tasted it before adding extra ingredients and thought it was already very good but I went ahead and added some garlic and Mexican Oregano because I did not have quite enough salsa. (We put garlic in almost everything.) This was delicious! We have three boys with very different tastes but everyone had seconds of this one. Can't really think of any cons even if I tried. Thanks for sharing!
