"A delicious, hearty bean soup. Very meaty, with a zesty Louisiana spice to it. Serve with a crusty bread or a cheddar beer bread."

Excellent! Will make it again. Only used 2 lg sausage links, 2 c. ham, 1 potato,1 celery stalk,used 1 can of kidney beans,pinto beans, 8 oz. tom. sauce and 15 oz. stewed tom. Adjusted the rest of the seasonings to my taste and the water. Oh and threw in some cooked macaroni. It was a hit.
This was very tasty! I cooked it on the stove for about 30-45 minutes and then put it in the crockpot for a few hours the next day to finish cooking. Served it with cornbread crumbled in bottom of bowl. Great flavor!
First time I made this, I followed the recipe exactly, except I made it quicker by boiling the beans at lunch time, letting them soak until I got home, then combining the whole lot in the pressure cooker for about a 1/2 hour. It was PERFECT! Second time I made it I didn't have a ham bone, just ham, and I used a can of beans instead of dry... definitely not the same. Edible, but no where near the original.
This was a unique tasting soup. I added some fine egg noodles to it to absorb some of the liquid, there was a lot of liquid. If I make this again, I will use crushed tomatoes, and less liquid (that was my fault). Thanks Jackie.
This is the best soup I have ever had. My husband and I are "hot heads" and enjoy anything with some spice. I have made this several times and there are always requests for more. Two Thumbs WAY up!
Good flavor. Next time I will leave out the sausage.
Very yummy and spicy! I used hot italian sausage. I accidentally picked up a package of pre-cooked sausage but it was fine. I just sliced it up. With the tomato base, it reminded me of red beans and rice. My soup was watery, as other readers, so I added egg noodles at the end. I think if you cook with the lid off, it would get thicker.
Fabulous way to use leftover ham from Christmas. I'm not sure what "ham hocks" are but I had spiral sliced ham leftovers that I cubed and added a beef summer sausage that I received as a gift from Hickory Farms instead of the Italian Sausage. This was SO easy!
