This is the recipe my grandmother and mom, now me too make our bean soup. We always enjoy eating this in the winter time. It is filling and warms you up in a hurry..It also fills the house with wonderful aroma that makes your mouth water .. hope you like this recipe.
Note:
If you like your soup a little thicker just add some instant potatoes untilyou get the thickness you like...usually about 1/2 cup will do.(it's a lot better than thickening with flour water.)
