Had this for supper yesterday and was really enjoyed by all. No spices/garlic meant the kids devoured it but i thought it could maybe have done with a bit of chilli or something..... personal taste nd all that. A great, economical, tasty dish tho. thanks Barb

It's getting to be soup weather in our area and this made for a wonderful main dish for our dinner. The bacon really added to the flavor. The recipe doesn't state the amount for the beans, so I added one can and it was sufficient. Thanks for sharing this great recipe, Barb.
