This soup is wonderful! The can of bean soup tops the flavor off perfectly.

Both my husband & I loved it. Had a leftover meaty ham bone, used it with a little liquid smoke. A keeper.

I brought ham shanks by mistake and did not know what to make with them, so I made this soup and the whole family loved it!
