Gotta tell you, this certainly was quick and easy and pretty darn tasty too. I had a box of chicken stock in the fridge, so I used that instead of bouillon granules and water which I think ramped up the flavor (and reduced sodium content, as well). Found no need to add any salt, plenty salty for us. I still love my homemade bean soup, but this will be my "go-to" recipe if I want a quick bean soup on the table in a half an hour. Thanks HARRYMARTINII for sharing your recipe.
