I have made this Black Bean Soup as well as eaten the original version and it's a perfect match.
This is the best black bean soup I have ever made. Now my family doesn't want me to make any other kind. Can't compare to TGI Friday's as I have never tasted it, but this is great.
I would have give it 5 stars. An excellent clone for TGI Fridays. I think you could switch with TGIF and no one would notice.

This was very easy to make. I've never had it at Friday's, and I'm not much of a soup eater, but it looked like a good cold-weather dish. I was not disappointed. It is probably the best soup I've ever had. I also tried it with a little sour cream on top, which to me was even better.

I worked for TGI Friday's for 6 years and this indeed tastes like the original. Make sure you use chicken broth, NOT stock. Friday's garnishes with only shredded jack cheese and green onions.
Best Black Bean Soup I have ever had. Picked up the recipe when it was free
