Excellent, filling supper. I didn't have enough black beans, so I added some navy beans and a can of chick peas. I buy dry beans, so when I cooked them, I tossed in a few chopped cloves of garlic (gets the blood flowin!) left out the ham, vinegar and sorrel and it still turned out GREAT! Also substituted veggie stock for beef and butternut squash for pumpkin. great flavor combo.

I made some substitutions - 2 pkg. frozen squash instead of the pumpkin (much quicker and easier), and spinach instead of kale. Loved the flavor!

OMG! This soup is soooo good! I took it to a pot luck and everyone loved it. Even my 3 year old liked it. My husband says it will be something he looks forward to every fall. I used fire roasted tomatoes because that's all I had but if anything I think that made the soup tastier.
