This came out tasting like the bean soup I used to have at a friends house all of the time. I only used bacon as a meat (fried it only halfway before tossing it in) and I also only used maybe half the salt or less. Didn't have to soak the beans, which I was happy to learn. And I added about a tsp of cayenne. Can't wait to heat some more up!

This soup is delicious. However I do think 4 tablespoons is way too much salt. I would cut that down to no more than 1. Maybe it is because I used white beans that were already cooked. I would also suggest using instead of regular hot dogs some kind of spice or smoked sausage like Conuceh. Very tasty soup!
