This recipe was great. I think it was watery for a bean soup. So, if you puree 1/4th -1/2 of the beans you will get a thicker soup product. It was really good tasting.

I followed the recipe to the letter and was completely satisfied as well as the other 2 people who were eating it with me. We all loved it!!!! Very, very easy to make. This is definitely a keeper.

Love it! I made it pretty much is written, except I used the beans I had on hand which were great northern southern seasoned beans, and I did not drain. I used three cans of beans, and the 4 cups of chicken broth.I also added in about a half teaspoon of ground mustard. I kept everything else the same, and wow! It's really good.Don't forget to take out some of the beans, mash them and put them back in for a creamier appearance and taste.

I used the beans I had on hand. 2 navy beans, 1 northern and 1 pinto. I add more ham than what the recipe called for and added some sweet peppers to the veggies. I also took the advise of the others and added bacon to the pot and put the kale 10 min before serving. So good! While the beans and such were cooking up, I mashed up some beans in the pot to thicken it up a bit! Definitely a keeper :)

So easy and super delicious! I added a bit of kale because I love veggies and to get some extra nutrients. It paired well in this dish. Would recommend it to others and keep it on hand for a lazy afternoon/evening meal. :)
