I'm always making bean soups in the winter and especially after having our Christmas ham and using that delicious ham bone. This soup turned out awesome. I can't wait to have the leftovers tomorrow as I always think it's better the next day.

My family loved the addition of potatoes to this one.

Enjoy!
