  1. In a large bowl, combine the beans with the water and let soak overnight. Beans will double in size so be sure to use a large enough bowl. In the morning, drain and rinse the beans.
  2. In a large pot over high heat, combine the beans, chicken, sausage, bay leaves, cumin, onion, garlic and sherry. Add enough water to cover all ingredients.
  3. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for about 30 minutes, or until beans are tender. Add tomato paste to soup and stir until dissolved.

This was really tasty over rice, as the author suggested. I found that the addition of a little hot sauce was just the perfect touch. This one is definitely a favorite around my house!

Really enjoyed this one and intend to make it many times now that the weather is getting cooler. Great taste and my husband, who is such a picky eater (argh) LOVED it! Thank you

The soup was a very hearty dish. My husband loved it.

It is a great recipe for a rainy day. The taste is great. We also added 1 tsp. salt and 2 tsp. granulated garlic which enhanced the flavor.

Overall very good. I did add salt and increased the spices. Topped with lime fresca (lime zest and sour cream).

This was an okay recipe. I ended up adding alot of spices because I found it bland. I think I'll hang with my old recipe for black bean soup.

I used canned black beans and Andouille sausage as that's what I had on hand. It's pretty good made as written but I threw in a good pinch of Adobo seasoning and also some fresh cilantro for ex...
