Creamy Black Beans Soup

This creamy black bean soup is delicious, hearty, and packed full of comforting flavors. It's an easy black bean soup recipe that you can make from canned black beans or entirely from scratch, which I recommend for the most flavor! No matter what you choose to use, just remember- Don't skip the toppings!! They make this delicious soup even better by adding some nice colors, flavors, and fun!
