This is my favorite soup and is best when served with a Caesar salad.

This soup prompted me to become a member just so I could comment on it! It was simple delicious and a great source of fiber! Because I use it in almost all my soups I added a dash of garlic powder. A bit of carrot or celery might be nice as well. Thanks for a great quick soup! Read More

As written this soup would have been way too bland for me but I liked the idea. With the following additions which included garlic and onion powders cumin chili powder paprika and low sodium fat free chicken broth it was just about perfect. I ran the beans thru my food processor before adding them to the liquid. Good start and thanks! Read More

I changed this recipe a bit and it tasted great! I made 4x the recipe and froze it in portions to be eaten with future dinner. I used canned white beans instead of pinto beans (that's what I had) I omitted the hot sauce and added some freshly minced garlic and some cumin. Once cooked I pureed the soup with my immersion blender. This soup couldn't be any easier! Just opening up some cans - and no chopping!!! Read More

This soup is delicious! I gave it 4 only because I changed it a little. I double it and to make it simple used 1 can of pinto beans and 3 cans off garbanzo beans. I used 4 cups of chicken broth rather than the water and bouillon. As for seasoning I used 2 tsp of onion powder 1 tsp chili powder and 1/2 tsp of cumin along with the recommended hot sauce. It was just enough seasoning to give it a hint of flavour without overwhelming the beans. So quick! Yumm! Thanks so much! Read More

Following Linda Mclean's lead I added garlic powder onion powder and cumin. I didn't add any chili powder because I didn't want it to taste exactly like chili "broth." It was okay; I enjoyed it. After tasting I felt the need to add more hot sauce. At the amount called for in the recipe I couldn't discern any hot sauce flavor at all. I added another five or six shakes of hot sauce. Spiced up this is a somewhat tasty (and healthy) recipe. As written it is somewhat ordinary. Because this is healthy easy to prepare and tasty I will have it again. Read More
