As written this was OK. We did doctor it up with more spices. I added 1 tsp of garlic powder, 1 tsp of pepper, some salt and liquid smoke. This made it better but still not our favorite.

Thanks! I thought this was a tasty recipe, even better the next day. I love beans, my husband loves meat, so this made us both happy. I ended up using all frozen vegetables and just adding the whole bag of each which wasn't too much veggie for us. Also I wasn't sure on additional spices to add, but put in 1 tsp of garlic powder and 1/2 tsp of pepper. I like how it turned out, if it was actually enough to make a difference.... This is a great, hearty soup to have in the rotation!
