This is a variation of bean soup that I developed when I was out of an ingredient! Now it's the only way I will make bean soup.

Okay Jim, DH said this was the best soup he had EVER had. I make soup a ton so needless to say I wasn't thrilled with his assessment. is delicious. Would not change one thing. Best thing is we had enough to freeze for another meal. Made for your 2011 Football win.
