Looks tasty! If you wanted to improve the flavor and calorie profile, sauteeing some onions, peppers and carrots before adding the other stuff would be a good idea. And zucchini. I always put shredded zucchini in soups--you never know it's there and it adds volume. :) I also love chipotles in black bean soup. Chipotles and black beans go perfectly together.

I copied your recipe. I like it because the ingredients are things I always have on hand.
