Filling, Flavorful Cuban Tomato and Black Bean Soup

Take advantage of your canned black bean and make it taste fresher with added tomatoes, ham hock, spices and unique flavors for a warm, filling dinner for everyone! I love the mixture of this recipe and they come together quickly. My family loved it even more. Make your own home-made soup like this; believe me, itÔÇÖs way better than the store-bought soups out there!
