ADD blended bean mixture, remaining beans with liquid, salsa, lime juice, cumin and crushed red pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 25 to 30 minutes. Serve topped with yogurt. Garnish with cilantro.
NOTE: Substituting 1 MAGGI Vegetarian Vegetable Flavor Bouillon Cube for the chicken bouillon makes this tasty soup vegetarian.

Thank you for reviewing this recipe.
Very easy to make, very good soup. I used a lime flavored salsa and Bush's brand seasoned black beans. Gave the soup a little kick, which was great.
I used Vegetable broth (instead of water and bouillion) and no-salt Black Beans. Did not compromise the taste at all - it is EXCELLENT!!
You can use vegetable broth instead of the chicken bouillion, it still tastes very good!
I cook once a week for a woman who I've been told is very finiky. When I made this soup it has been requested over and over again. I love it for being soo easy. Thanks for this site so I can find other great recipes.
This is one of my favourite dishes. I use diabetic salsa (or homemade) for my father. I started making new recipes for him when he was first diagnosed and it became an instant favourite! Even my three year old asks for seconds of this one. It's a sure-fire crowd pleaser. I wouldn't recommend it for sleep-overs though. This is one for those who know they will be sleeping alone the night they eat it. LOL! ;-)
