Heat oil in heavy large pot over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, and thyme; saute until onion is golden, about 8 mins. Add beans, reserved 1 cup of bean liquid, 3-1/2 cups of broth, tomatoes with juice, cumin and hot pepper sauce.
Bring soup to boil; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer (uncovered) until flavors blend and soup thickens slightly, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes. Cool slightly.
Working in 2 batches, puree 2-1/2 cups of soup in blender (I used my cuisinart food processor on pulse several times) until smooth. Mix puree back into soup pot.
