Very good!! Watched your video then made a pot of wonderful black bean soup. I added a Tablespoon of pico de gallo and sour cream to my bowl. Thank you for a "keeper" recipe.

It would be nice to have the recipe ingredients and instructions printed, with the video, since captioning is not provided. A video as presented here--without words or the typical ingredients and instructions--is useless for the deaf.

Delicious. Put salsa on top of sour cream, less work and tasty. With a piece of french bread. Great meal. PS. You started telling us about the hole in the spoon; but didn't finish.

Made as advertised. Delish. Added some sherry at the end. A nice finish, I think. Also added a can of Rotel mild chilis & tomatoes. A great soup.

First day of Autumn and the damp chilly weather kept me in the kitchen- so easy to prepare and followed the recepie verbatim- Wife said, "well, I'll give it a try, but I'm not sure I'll like it". Well, after her second scoop, she finished the pot in front of the fire last evening-
it's me

I have often added a can of fatfree refried beans to chili and black bean soups. That way - no mashing but a nice thickening.
