I started out wanting to use up some chicken stock, saw the black beans, and went from there. We love enchiladas and tamales and we really enjoy soup for dinner, so I figured the flavors were all there, why wouldn't it be delicious? It was. Got my fussy husband's seal of approval, and, believe me, that's something.
