A flavorful, hearty soup made of black beans, tomatoes, chicken and vegetables spiced with oregano, garlic, cumin, ground cloves and sherry wine.  

Note:  I sometimes cook the chicken separately before making the soup so I’ll have chicken broth to use in the soup instead of water.  If you have soup base instead of bouillon, use 1/2 cup soup base in place of the bouillon cubes.

Adapted from a recipe from Eatem Soup Bases.
