    I already shared this ‘cuz I love BBS.
    This is a great recipe & I’d still add a dollop of sour cream
    (besides, it adds a LOOK)!

    The black bean soup looks delicious! I sure old go for a nice big bowl with some warm crusty bread! It would be perfect on this cold blustery night while we are waiting for the snow storm that is expected to fall! Then I would pull up a hair in front of the wood stove which is blazing! Perfection! Just like the soup!

    I am intrigued with the addition of the orange juice and LOVE cilantro….like really love cilantro and cumin (people don’t use it enough in our neck of the woods and can never figure out that “flavor”)… this will be a definite must try at our next gathering…on a cold day in front of our fireplace! Thanks, Cooper!

    you made a mess, but I would gladly clean it up, looks yummy!!

    I think the addition of the avocado to your blackbean soup could add a real creamy texture. And I’ve never thought of white wine in succotash but it could really update an old classic looking forward to making them both.

    now this is the kind of recipe I love, when I just don’t feel like spending a lot of time in the kitchen. It is so cold here in Texas, may have to whip this up today!

    Well Black Bean Soup has always been one of my favorites. I have only really made Chicken & pea soup myself as I am not much of a cook. But boy can I sing!
    Still I am going to take a stab at this recipe Coop. I will let you know how it turns out my friend.
    Happy Turkey Day!

    I am going to make this the first chance I get – love anything with black beans.

    My husband smokes turkey legs in our smoker and use them in bean soup instead of ham hocks, yummy. Your soup is perfect for a chilly winter/fall day.
