I tripled the recipe. We all loved it. Comfort soup is what I would call it.

This was really good! I halved the recipe for two, and still had leftovers. Very good served with cornbread, and will definitely make again!!!!

Absolutely delish, I only added 3/4 the beans it called for, and added just a dash of garlic powder, and a dash of chili pepper. My 4 year Grandson even liked it! Thanks for the recipe!

Good and very easy. We cut the chili power in half though.

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.
