    Enjolinfam's Note:

    Another family favorite recipe that has been scratched on a piece of paper without knowing where it came from. It's a delicious soup and though we've tried many black bean soups on Zaar and elsewhere and really liked them, this one is our favorite.

      Definitely 10 stars for ease, a nice recipe to know when you don't have much time to throw a wholesome meal together. I had some previously cooked black beans on hand, so it was even quicker for me as there were no tins to open or drain. Made exactly as written, using slightly less chili powder than called for and fresh garlic instead of powdered. I'm not a big fan of boiling onions, and although the end result is very good here, for me it would have been 5 stars if I had sauteed the onions in some oil before adding the broth. Great consistency, so often black bean soups are really thick, I think this is just right. Thanks Enjolinfam!

      Yummy, easy and filling. Basically a "pantry recipe" yet still very good. I think I'd mash 2 of the cans of black beans next time to make it just a bit thicker...... or maybe use less liquid. Overall, it's a very satisfying soup. Thanx!
