Black Bean and Tomato Soup Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2014
I used vegetable broth instead of chicken broth, left out the yogurt and garnished with sour cream. I also drained the black beans. We (me AND my sometimes-picky kids) LOVED it, after adding some salt. I only realized there was none in the recipe after we sat down to eat. Oh, I also threw the Rotel into the food processor with the beans, because my son prefers tomatoes he can't see. ??

I really loved this recipe but I did make a few changes to it: after the garlic/onions were tender I added some finely chooped carrots (I try to add lots of veggies to soup finely chopped, to make it healthier); then I added some Red Hot (hot sauce), and waited til carrots got a bit tender. Then I added everything as indicated in recipe, but added a can of NON-PUREED black beans & about 1/2 c. of chicken broth. I cooked it as directed, adding about a cup of corn at end, some shredded cheese for garnish and it was WONDERFUL! So glad I found this recipe. (Next time I might add some chopped zucchini too, for more veggies!) Oh, and I didn't use yogurt--used sour cream for garnish though. :D

I used homemade chicken stock and I chose not to add the yogurt as it was optional. Because I do NOT care for Ro-Tel, I used a can of petite diced tomatoes and one 4 ounce can diced mild green chilies instead. This soup is fabulous. I am both a working mother and working with a tight budget, this was able to be made in less than 20 minutes, could be kept warm in a crockpot until my family got home and could be served with grilled cheese sandwiches (which can be easily made by Daddy) with easy clean up. PLUS, the family loved the soup. NO leftovers.

This was very good! From an ingredients perspective, I did not change a thing (didn't use the yogurt but garnished with Sour Cream)but from a preparation perspective, I did make a few alterations to hide the veggies from my children. I threw the cooked onions/garlic and the Rotel into the food processor with the beans and broth. It came out great and I suspect the leftovers will be better tomorrow. The soup appears to be thickening up a bit in the fridge. Thanks for sharing!
