      I love this recipe. I think it is my favorite Rick Bayless recipe. Since I have a 4 year old daughter I have had to make some changes. I leave out the chorizo and chipotle. Instead of the chorizo I add chicken thighs to the beans when they are boiling and make a chipotle sour cream to add as a topper to the soup. I also serve chopped radishes, cilantro, avocado, queso fresco, and chopped onions to spoon on as toppers. This soup is perfection!

      Superb! Despite having no typical spices, the flavor from the fennel and chorizo gives this outstanding flavor. This takes awhile to make, but it's worth the effort. Thanx for a great Mexican soup!

      Never would have thought to combine shrimp with black bean soup but it's a wonderfully textural combination. I did miss my garlic at first but then I didn't wait 24 hours for the flavors to intensify and meld either.
