accidently i think i just made a whole new recipe, i tased this when it was done and felt like it needed something, i added cumin, white pepper and that was good, also, i used chicken broth, smoked sausage added gr pepper and a can of mexi corn, it was great, we loved it


Excellent Soup. I used 2 cans of black beans, fire roasted tomatoes in place of the regular canned tomatoes, lean diced ham instead of the sausage, chili powder to taste, and fresh pico de gallo instead of the salsa. I will add it to the rotation. Maybe next time I will try adding rice for a change as others have suggested.


Simple and delicious! My husband couldn't stop going back for more. (Will add water today when I reheat some for lunch.) I made this with sweet Italian sausage, which I cooked separately. I used two cans of beans, added a can of corn and served this over rice (with bread on the side). Omitted the cilantro. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. It's nice to find one my husband is so enthusiastic about!
