This soup is one of my favorite recipes (from our cookbook "Cooking with All Things Trader Joe's"), smoky with cumin and tangy with lime. It's a healthy, low-fat, and delicious meal that can be part of a weekly menu. Canned beans preserve the nutritional value of the beans and make it much easier and convenient to use them in recipes. You can also let this dish simmer longer and get very thick for a terrific bean dip or burrito filling! This soup also freezes well, although we usually never have any left over to freeze!
