My family really enjoys this soup. It is quick and easy to make. I like to make it using left over ham from Christmas or Easter.

How to Make Bean Soup


  1. Saute garlic and onion in oil
  2. Add chicken broth, beans, stewed tomatoes, ham, brown sugar, salt and pepper, and hot sauce. Bring to boil then reduce to a simmer stirring occasionally. Until heated through and soup thickens.
  3. I usually smash the beans a little to release the starch to help thicken the soup.
