I like bean soups since they're cheap, easy to make, and healthy comfort food. I've never made 15 bean soup before this, but I loved the way this one turned out so I had to post it so I wouldn't forget. It ended up being a combination of things I had around and wanted/needed to get rid of...either way, this is yummy! I didn't add the meat off the bone, but if you like it...feel free! Great for cozying up when it's cold or watching football (or hockey!).
