Great soup! I added my own touches because I can't leave well enough alone! haha not really and wanted to keep it low fat and used what I had on hand. I used turkey bacon, fresh garlic and powdered garlic, chili powder, a whole can of diced tomatoes with jalepenos and 32 oz fat free chicken broth. Added more of the oregano, some basil and more cayenne. Used Lite salt and fresh cracked black pepper and topped with low fat sour cream. It's a winner! Thanks Chef, John!

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.
