RECIPE: Heather's Black Bean Soup

A couple of years ago, I was hankering for some black bean soup. I hadn't found a good recipe to try, so I decided to create my own.

It's been awhile since I made this soup, and I'd forgotten how good it is! Served with some corn muffins with a little sugar tossed in to sweeten them-- ooooh, mama!
