This is my favorite soup to make, to honest I make it year round, but with the recent cold weather, it was perfect.
Bring to good bubble, then lower the heat and simmer for at least 30 minutes.
You can serve this like traditional soup, with crackers, or with corn chips. Garnish it for sure with cheese, and if you like, add a dollop of sour cream. Have I mentioned how much I love this soup?
As always, you can vary the beans--I've used every kind of bean from pintos to red beans to ranch style to plain old pork and beans. I know a lot of people who use chunk tomatoes, as well. Once in a pinch I used a can of tomato soup and a can of cheddar cheese soup, and it was good then, too.
What's you favorite soup to make?
