Recipe by ratherbeswimmin

Adapted from a BHG recipe. The flavor was better, to me, on the second day.

I figured since the option to use different beans was there, I'd opt for a can each of dark red kidney, black and great northern beans along with some frozen corn for color. It worked well. No dried thyme so snipped a sprig of fresh rosemary and let simmer for about 20 minutes in the soup. Leftovers were yummy and because I like spicy stuff, added some green Tabasco the 2nd night. Mahalo!
