MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 27, 2014

We enjoyed this even more when I pureed one can of the beans with some of the chicken broth in a food processor and added for a thicker texture. I also used lower sodium chicken broth.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 18, 2014

We absolutely loved this recipe. The soup is awesome! I used lower sodium chicken broth and leftover spiral ham. It is so yummy. I made it last night for dinner and my daughter and I finished it up for lunch today. Next time I will double the recipe....it really IS that good!

This is the best bean soup recipe I've tried. The whole family loved it.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 3, 2014

This recipe was so simple and so good. This is going to be a family favorite. I only wish I had doubled so there were more leftovers. The only thing I changed is that I added in some diced chili ready tomatoes. We like spicy!
