Notes about this recipe

    We loved this! I ended up making lots of small changes---I only used one can of black beans, subbing the other for a handful of green lentils I needed to use up. I reluctantly added the liquid from the can of beans, as per the instructions. I substituted some chopped butternut squash for one of the potatoes, and used pickled jalapeños rather than fresh. I used half a tablespoon of cumin and half a tablespoon of coriander, rather than a full tablespoon of cumin. I sautéed a handful of chopped cilantro stems in with the onion, garlic and jalapeños. I also used a mixture of chicken stock and water rather than a bouillon cube. This soup was extremely delicious, held up to all my alterations, and improved over the next few days. I'd be happy to have some of this in my freezer for later, but we ate it too quickly for that.

    Pg. 27. A great winter soup with loads of flavor. I swapped out a few ingredients but IMO that did not subtract from its distinctive flavor. I used black-eyed peas, and chicken broth instead of bouillon and water. Included with the onion and garlic were diced carrot and celery. The jalapeno included the ribs and seeds. We loved the soup and will certainly make it again.
