Recipe Notes
If you don't have all the beans listed for this soup you can also do
navy, pinto, or kidney beans.
Add tortilla chips on top for extra flavor and crunch with your soup.
Use fire roasted diced tomatoes versus regular diced tomatoes for extra
depth of flavor.
Make sure you let this soup simmer for proper amount of time (1 1/2
hours) to thicken and develop in flavor.
If you have one, use a dutch oven to cook your soup. Dutch ovens are a
versatile cooking vessel, and are perfect for slow cooking like soups
and stews.
