Best base recipe for black bean soup I could find. I agree with other posters that 7 cups of water would be way too much, so I used 2 cups of vegetable broth, and threw in the liquid from the can with the beans, rather than rinsing and draining them. I skipped the green peppers, and added a 10 oz can of diced tomatoes with green chiles when I put in the beans and the broth. I used considerably more cumin, 4 generous shakes, 2 shakes of chili powder, a shake each of garlic powder and onion powder, and a little dried cilantro. I pureed a little over half the soup. I garnished it with a little sour cream, but it would have been equally good without it. Green onions, fresh salsa, or shredded cheese would also be good garnishes with this soup if you like to experiment. This turned out better than any black bean soup I've gotten in a restaurant.
