Muir Glen Organic Southwest Black Bean Soup

Muir Glen Organic Southwest Black Bean Soup is organic and vegan and, according to the website, "features tender black beans simmered with spices and vegetables including our vine-ripened Muir Glen tomatoes."

I have to admit at having scoffed at canned soup lately, but Muir Glen is RIDICULOUSLY GOOD! First I enjoyed the Muir Glen Organic Chicken Tortilla Soup, but luckily I bought this Southwest Black Bean variety as well, which I can say is just as good as the former. I don't think I have ever had a canned soup where the solid content is not mushy - not until now! The black beans are still slightly firm, and there is plenty of them, plus lots of corn and little chunks of tomatoes floating around. And, there is a spicy kick to the soup which I quite enjoyed. It does have a Southwest feeling to it ... take note Pacific Natural Foods Homestyle Creamy Southwestern Corn Soup.

Each cup of Muir Glen Organic Southwest Black Bean Soup provides 120 calories from 0.5 grams of fat (1% of the daily value), 650 mg of sodium (27% of the DV), 7 grams of fiber (28% of the DV), 3 grams of sugars plus 8 grams of protein. That's 10 calories less than the Muir Glen Organic Chicken Tortilla Soup, and more than twice the fiber, plus less sodium.

The ingredients are organic, and the soup is vegan as well. I purchased a 16 ounce can for $2.00 on sale (regular price $2.50). I would give Muir Glen Organic Chicken Tortilla Soup a slight edge in taste, but the Southwest Black Bean Soup has better nutrition facts.
