I have a cousin who introduced my to Panera Bread's black bean soup and so when I saw this recipe I decided to try it for her. I did saute an onion and added garlic powder before adding the beans. I used 2 larger cans of beans that I found in the Latino section of the store. Since I had more beans than was called for I added the whole can of vegetable broth and the whole jar of medium heat salsa. Whoa! It was too hot. I mashed it with my potato masher until I got the consistency I wanted. But next time I'll use mild salsa. My cousin, my husband, and I did think it was very good, and I thought it was very easy. She didn't say if it tasted like Panera's, but she really like it.
