Subtly flavoured comfort – that describes this traditional Mexican soup best of all. Prepared easily with a pressure-cooked blend of black beans and other ingredients, the Black Beans Soup is a wholesome dish that you will love to slurp up. You will be amazed by how hung curds works even better than the stereotyped choice of fresh cream in garnishing this satiating soup.

A super creamy, black bean soup. The ingredients used is so simple, but yet so tasty. Serve this soup piping hot. A must try soup.
