I'd give this 5 stars for taste, but I did make a few changes. I hadn't read the reviews before I made this, but I thought between the ham bones and chicken broth, it probably wouldn't need that much salt, so I didn't put any in at all until after the sauteed veggies and ham were added, then just sprinkled some in to taste. I also shook in some cumin seeds and red pepper flakes. In addition to the chopped tomatoes (I used 4 Roma tomatoes), I added a can (14.5 oz.)of diced tomatoes, with juice. I also didn't bother pureeing some of the beans. The beans were not soft enough after 2 1/2 hours total, so next time I will either cook them for a longer time before I add the other things, or will soak them overnight. Thanks for the great soup idea, I really love this with my modifications.
