Good, but not the best black bean soup recipe on this site.
This recipe wasn't bad. I think the key might be to use a mediocre beer that will get a lot of the flavor cooked out of it, and not a true "lager"...I used Labatt Blue Light and it worked nicely. You could still taste it but it wasn't crazy overpowering (but then again, I like beer). I also subbed water with veggie stock, and added a little hot sauce. Went nice with a tomato avocado salad.
I thought this recipe was terrible. I used an immersion blender to thicken the soup, had to add more seasoning as it was so bland, and the flavor of the lager was way too overpowering.
I thought this soup was good, and easy. I only used about a quarter of a large red onion, as I am not a huge onion fan. I really liked the salsa with the soup- it added the right amount of heat and acidity. If you really are making it to serve four, do not plan on any leftovers.
i made this in the crock pot and it was awful, way too onion-y.
