Absolutely the BEST black bean soup I have ever made. I only made a few minor modifications based on what I had available. Instead of putting the beans in the crockpot after cooking with water, I used vegetable stock. When I added the vegetables (carrots, onions, 1 yellow pepper, 2 stalks celery, garlic, and a can of chopped green chiles) and lentils, I did NOT add the tomatoes or vinegar based on the advice of prior reviews. I used chipotle chili powder and red pepper flakes in addition to the other seasonings. For the last hour, I turned the heat back up to high and added brown rice, tomatoes (2 cans fire roasted tomatoes with garlic), and the red wine vinegar. The result was a soup, but when I pureed half with a stick blender and added it back into the crockpot - well, WOW! This made it so much better. This was so good and had such depth of flavor, I don't think I have ever tasted a better soup anywhere. This is my new favorite soup!
