My husband and I were given two bags of bean soup mix as a wedding gift. It sat in the pantry for awhile since neither one of us had ever made bean soup. One day, shortly after Thanksgiving, I pulled it out and looked at the recipe. Then I researched other bean soup recipes. I decided to combine three recipes together to make this soup. It's great way to use leftover turkey.
I've even mixed up the beans and given this recipe/bean mix as a gift.
