"This soup tastes just like fresh salsa, one of my favorites! You could add jalapeno or chilies to make it spicy; this version is mild."

This was EXCELLENT! I didn't have any cilantro, but it was still good without. One note - I added sour cream on top, but I wouldn't again because it started to cook by the time we were getting to the bottom of our bowls...however, since the recipe does not call for sour cream, I still must give it 5 stars. Served with mini quesadillas for dipping.
This was a great fast and easy recipe by itself,but I added rice, cheese( on top) and fat free sourcream(top).
Excellent soup!! Easy, quick and everyone loved it! Now that's my idea of success. I didn't use the cooking sherry in the soup. I couldn't see the reason for it. I'd rather drink a small glass of wine while preparing the soup. This is a definite keeper for our family.
EXCELLENT! I made the recipe as written with 2 exceptions: I thoroughly rinsed the beans in a collander or sieve prior to cooking so as to eliminate the gassy after effects that beans have on some people. Also, I find that adding a little wine or cooking sherry gives the beans a great flavor. Just before serving, I added a small dollop of sour cream with a few leaves of fresh cilantro and a tortilla chip sticking out of the sour cream. I received rave reviews and requests for 2nd and 3rd helpings.
Only wanted to make half the recipe so used a 10 oz can of Rotel tomatoes and just 1 can of black beans - 2 grated carrots and 2 cups of beef broth. Didn't have fresh cilantro so used some oregano in the soup instead. And what's salsa without a splash of lime juice? My potato masher did the trick of making the soup slightly smooth, but still chunky.
My husband loved it and he hates everything......
Don't really like cilantro so I left it out, but otherwise I made it as written and it is delicious!! Next time I will add a few more carrots, celery and onions....and Beano!!! :)
This soup is good and we will probably make it again. We pureed some of the beans and I added in a couple of cans of green salsa and extra garlic to ramp up the flavor a bit. I also added in some cubed ham that we needed to use up. The soup came out delicious.
