Why you’ll love this recipe

There is just something magical about dried beans that have been soaked overnight and then slowly simmered in a soup until they are tender, creamy and oh so good! This is pure comfort food that will fill your home with the rich smell of soup all day! In addition to the beans this soup contains onions and tomatoes and is seasoned with garlic, chili powder and of course, plenty of bacon! This soup is great either served chunky veggies in a broth or where everything is pureed into a thick and creamy soup – be sure to top it off with crispy bacon crumbles!
