Why This Soup Is So Good
- This bean soup is the perfect easy, fast lunch or dinner recipe. All you need are 5 minutes, 4 ingredients, and the toppings of your choice. Plus it’s incredibly inexpensive to fix yourself a bowl of this filling, warm soup (begone, instant ramen!).
- Totally customizable with whatever garnishes you choose, we love that this recipe can be totally different (or the same!) every single time.
- This soup is super easy to make with just a can of refried beans, or kick it up a notch with our homemade refried black beans recipe.
