This was good but very salty for us. I followed the recipe as written other then mine was cooked in less then four hours.

Simple to make soup. This only took about 4 hours in my crockpot, but every crock is different. I love that it used canned beans, as I hate soaking them. I thought it was a bit too salty. Maybe adding some potato would help to absorb some of the salt from the broth and canned soups. I put a few shots of hot sauce in my bowl. Made and Reviewed for Zaar Tag - Thanks! :)
