Hearty and delicious! This one's going into the regular winter rotation! I made this tonight with minor changes - a can of white beans instead of pintos (I think any 'soup' bean would be fine here) also sauteed celery along with onions in the same pan as the bacon, and used an entire quart of beef broth - 2 cups of broth was a bit too thick of consistency for me. I noticed some comments about this being too sweet, I'm guessing a sweet red wine was used. If you're not familiar with wine and aren't sure what to use, I'd suggest going with a drier red like a cabernet, merlot or pinot noir. Finally, because of the bacon, this recipe didn't need extra salt. A little pepper, some mozzarella and bread made this a 5 star winner for my wife and I. Oh yeah, I'm going to double this next time!
