This soup was delicious. I used a chicken-based chorizo sausage to reduce the amount of fat.

I made this soup for my family as a spur of the moment change of pace and they LOVED it! We halved the cayenne pepper to make it more mild and found that this is a dish we'll be eating often in the future. Thank you Sara!

This soup was really tasty and easy to make! I scaled the recipe to 4 servings and found that using only 1-1/2 cups of water wasn't near enough so I increased the amount of water to 3-1/2 cups and it was still a pretty thick soup. I will definitely be making this again.

I'd really like to give this a three and a half stars; my husband really liked it, I sort of liked it. It brought to mind my grandfather's habit of putting ketchup in his chicken soup. Why he would do that? I don't know. Anyway, it's a change of pace soup; something different with the beans, definitely spicy, and easy to fix.

This is a great soup. I also added 4-5 cloves of garlic, 2 large red chillis, and coriander stirred in close to the end (and to garnish). Served with crusty french bread! Went down a treat with all my friends :-)

This is such a tasty soup! My kids and I absolutely loved it, however, I ommitted the celery but it still came out great, tastes like chilli!
