Nice and easy bean soup. I added carrots and celery because we like them and it seems to add a little something more to the beans.

I make this at least twice a month! My husband and I love it! Don't change nothing!!! It's delish! I never cooked it on high; always low but I cooked it on high today and it was just as good...

This recipe looks great! I actually tried something like this a while back, and this just brought back so many nostalgic memories, haha! I love cooking stuff like this. I always try to find new ...

I made it as is and was delicious my son loved it as well which was super cool as he's tactile defensive it was a1st for him and he loved it will definitely make it again

Thank you I really like this bean soup!! I did replace the neck bones with ham hocks and use cayenne pepper instead of the hot sauce.
