Expert Tips

  • To add a little extra spiciness, add a canned chipotle chile in adobo sauce before blending the soup mixture. For chunkier soup, add a 15-ounce can of Progresso® black beans, drained, before you heat the soup.
  • To substitute for the Progresso® black bean soup, decrease the amount of whipping cream to 3/4 cup and use 2 cans (15 oz each) Progresso® black beans, undrained.
  • If a thinner soup is desired, substitute part of the whipping cream with chicken broth.
