Super simple and easy but so good! I added more garlic and bacon but otherwise I stuck to the recipe. I added a few dashes of hot sauce in my own bowl (my little girl doesn't do spicy) and it was amazing! Thanks!

Used peppered bacon, and dry red beans I pre cooked. I also used the stock from par-boiling country style pork ribs the day before instead of water. This soup is great and easy to make. It got better the next day and better still a few days later.

Yum, Yum! I love beans, and hence loved this soup! I made a few changes, using dried beans I cooked in a pressure cooker, using 4 cups of chicken broth instead of water, and then adding 4-5 TBS of potato flakes. Delish!

This was very good. A nice, easy alternative to traditional bean soup. You might want to wait on adding salt till the end. I suspected that the bacon might make it pretty salty so I left the salt out and then tasted it after it simmered a while and felt like it only needed a pinch.

Delicious. I used veggie broth instead of water and added a few dashes of Frank's Red Hot at the end. Very yummy comfort soup.

Yum! This was a 5 star for me. It was a cold winter day here yesterday and all I wanted was some comfort. This did it! I didn't have celery so I just added extra carrots and onion. I also used cannellini beans and chicken broth that needed to be used up and it was fantastic. A couple shots of tabasco on top made it even better. The only problem was that we ate all of it in one sitting. I will be making this again very soon. Thanks for a great recipe.

Excellent and easy recipe. I added a little more garlic and black pepper, a diced carrot, some onion powder and a couple shots of tobasco -- just because we like soup a little more savory/spicy. Served with warm Ital bread. Very good soup that was great on a cold evening!
