Venezuelan Black Bean Soup
Simple, fast, and wonderful hearty black bean soup. Has great robust flavor and is a meal in itself. I made this for a dinner party and my guests loved it. I had to run to the computer, type it up, and hand out copies! Garnish with sour cream and Cheddar cheese.
Use 3 1/2 cups water and 3 1/2 cups chicken broth for extra flavor.
