Great soup and freezes well. It is very filling. A friend gave me this recipe. Her husband is a picky eater and loves it.

I used 1 lb ground beef and 1/2 of a small onion. For the kidney beans, I used the dark red beans. I simmered the soup for 45 minutes and the flavors blended well and the soup was bubbling.

What a lovely soup for a cold day! The mixture of beans is different and really nice. Melanie said that it freezes well, but I can't weigh-in on that... We didn't have a drop left! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
