Very easy!! I made mine meatless, and used one can of kidney beans and one can of white beans. Added some Italian seasoning, but this is probably cuz of leaving out the meat. Made for the Saucy Silverados on the ZWT.

Delicious! This is such a simple and tasty soup that can be made with items that I have in my pantry all of the time. I used some leftover cooked prime rib out of the freezer, and a Knorr soup mix. I couldn't find 2 colors of kidney beans (I think because most grocery shelves were pretty bare because of our weather), so I used 2 cans of red. The only change that I made was to add some Italian seasoning. This was a wonderful lunch on a cold day and I look forward to lunch tomorrow as well. Thanks Hokies for a great simple and tasty meal.
