    Mikekey's Note:

    This bean soup gets some "bite" from a red chile paste. I have included a link to a homemade version, but you might try a bottle Thai or Indian Chili Paste.

      I made a couple of changes to this, used Thai chili paste and used a Turkish sausage that is more or less the same other than being beef rather than pork. However it is a wonderful recipe that I really loved and I will be making it again for sure. It is cold and rainy so this hot, spicy, garlicy soup was perfect. I will be making this again for sure. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT 8.

      I made this for ZWT8, and its going in my keepers book.....really enjoyed it the 2nd day. The heat intensified and the flavor of the linguica (found surprisingly at Publix!) really permeated the soup the 2nd day. I used half red beans and half pintos. Thanks for sharing a deliciously easy soup!
