"I've been making this recipe since it appeared in TOH, and it's a winter favorite. You can switch out different beans to your family's liking, and I use the spicy tomatoes and Rotel to give it a bit more kick. It's also a good recipe for leftover beans, which I cook a lot because we're not big meat-eaters. I make this soup in the slow cooker so it can simmer for several hours and serve it with cornbread and onions."
