Simple to prepare! Throw it in your crock pot in the morning, and it will be done when you get home from work! I use fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth, and no-salt-added diced tomatoes.

I agree that this is a good basic soup recipe. I also had to "spice" it up a bit by adding cumin chili powder garlic powder black pepper cayenne pepper red wine vinegar oregano and basil. Adjust to your own taste and you've got a winner! Read More

This soup was okay. The name implies that the soup is spicy. It is not spicy at all. In fact we thought it was a bit bland. We all ate it but I don't think anyone thoroughly enjoyed it. Don't think I will make it again. Read More

I loved the basics of this soup - you had no spices OR "love" so I added a whole lot of cumin chili powder cayanne pepper wayy more garlic and a can of creamed corn. I blended up a can of pinto beans and the tomatoes (sweet onion) to make it a bit thicker. Great Base reciepe! Read More

OK I saw this recipe and freaked out! I soaked 1 cup black beans and 1 cup of cranberry beans overnight. I rinsed and boiled them w/red pepper flakes in chx broth; sauteed japs 1/2 onion & 4 big garlic cloves. I chopped 3 Romas and threw 'em in; had no carrots. Everybody now goes in the crock pot (high) 5 hrs-adding spices. After 5 hrs. I added Rotelle w/green peppers and 1 can of corn (drained) and 2 more cups of chx broth. Garnish w/chopped onion sour cream and shredded cheddar! Dip Italian bread in this and you'll freak out at the flavour/spices!!! Read More

Super yummy and healthy!! I made the following adaptations: vegetable broth instead of chicken broth only one can of tomatoes used a full cup of green chiles used one minced hot pepper and cayenne pepper to taste. With those adjustments it was hot to our liking. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I spiced it up with extra garlic chili powder cumin and cayenne pepper. I also used dried beans instead of canned (soaked and simmered for a couple of hours) because I had them. But this was really good and super healthy! Thanks for posting! Read More

Easy recipe; family enjoyed it. Makes enough for two dinners for family of four. Couldn't find frozen shoepeg corn so used regular frozen corn and served with warm tortillas and topped soup with shredded cheese. Tasty!! Read More

Really good. This has become a staple at our house. We love to mix in a spoonful of sour cream to our bowls and sprinkle with cheese. Read More

I made this recipe almost exactly as stated except that I don't know what shoepeg corn is so I just added regular frozen corn. I also added about 1 tsp of cumin based on previous comments. Overall it wasn't very spicy but my boyfriend and I enjoyed it very much. Very colourful healthy and filling. Read More

This is a great crockpot recipe especially for church suppers. I use only black beans instead of kidney beans and spice the soup up with cumin and chili powder. This is a favorite at church and in our home on those cold New England evenings! Read More
