This recipe from my grandma is simple and doesn't have any weird ingredients. I knew as soon as I read it that it would be a meal I would love. I'm a fan of black beans, and any soup that I get to top with all the goodies is a winner with me!

Besides the toppings, this is made with ingredients that you may just have. It is filling and full of flavor! It really only makes 4 servings, so be sure to double it if you want to feed more people. Enjoy!
