    Chef*Lee's Note:

    I love bean soup with ham and I thought I would give it a little kick!! Hopefully you can find the crushed chipotle flakes, they give it a smokey flavor that you can't get with just red pepper flakes. I have seen them in many stores such as Wal-Mart supercenter, Whole Foods, and more. Hope you like it!! (Prep time does not include overnight soaking of the beans)
