Spicy Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2014
Once again, a good base for an amazing soup! Make it your own. I added quite a few flavors. I placed a whole diced onion, 3 carrots,4 slices of bacon and I was very generous on the Cumin, Cayenne, and pepper. To really smooth it out, I brought in my hand blender after 4 hours to make it much more creamy. I also cheated and added some cream cheese, half a package. Dress it with some Cilantro and a great Zinfandel and WOW...a great soup. Don't forget, season to you and your families tastes. We like it spicy at my house! Cheers

Wintertime French Style Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2013
Nice recipe. I did like the Turmeric and Cayenne as part of the color and kick it needs to make it special. I also like the idea of keeping it "rustic" by keeping some of the carrots and other ingredients added later for some texture. I did add some pork for a bit more salt. Will definitely make this one again. I will probably add a more substantial pork bone next time.

Pumpkin Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2013
Great recipe as a base. Sometimes the basic recipes are a little bland but that lets you take it to your own personal tastes.(Southwestern, Indian or even well blended for a smooth, creamy experience) I think you can take it in any direction you want. I added some Tumeric and Jalapeno to add some heat. I also made cooked my own black beans instead of canned. I then gave it a loose mash to have both the texture from the mashed beans and some whole beans for a more rustic look. I served with Pita and a Zinfandel. Pretty great.
