The recipe is a great base to build on. I used chicken broth instead of water to add some flavor. I drained the black beans and added a can of diced stewed tomatoes and a can of corn, and an abundance of fresh veggies (red onion, green onion, bell peppers, cilantro, and celery)


I am a poor starving college student and the key word is poor and this recipe is an excellent one for us on a budget but are hungry for something that will heat up the mouth a bit (I did not cool it in the fridge and I put in red pepper flakes and a tish of chili powder) thanks!!!!!


Big hit with the family. Some adjustments: Cooked on stove- started by sauteing some chopped onion then chopped red pepper (about 1/4 cup each) and clove of garlic before adding the water and all other items (left out sugar). Also used a chunky salsa and didn't strain it- left chunks in. Noticed I had some leftover corn so tossed a bit of that in too. Let simmer for probably 30 mins as prepared some cornbread to go with the meal. Used a submersible stick blender to puree bulk of soup. Flexitarian daughter went back for seconds before even having any cornbread! I didn't care for the cherry tomatoes so next time will instead use diced tomato in lieu of them. I'm not very creative in the kitchen to concoct my own recipe, so this was a solid foundation to work with. Thanks Corwynn!
