Absolutely delightful and oh, so easy! I made this today for lunch with a ham quiche for my parents and a friend - everyone loved it! I had to send the leftovers home with my Dad!! I used one 14oz can of navy(haricot) beans and one 14oz can of red kidney beans as it was easier to kind the standard size cans and I like both types of beans. I wouldn't want any less beans though! The other thing I did was to use one can of italian stewed tomatoes and only 4 cups of beef broth. Otherwise I made exactly as directed. Delightful soup I will be making more this Fall and Winter - I may add sausages to this as a main dish! YUM!
