This was AWESOME! However, I'm giving it 5 stars with my addition of 1/2 of one chipotle pepper in adobo sauce. I also added a tiny potato, minced, that I needed to use up, and I only had 1/2 of a green pepper, but otherwise I stuck to the recipe (I didn't measure the ham, but only used 1/2 lb). I wonder if the author intended for the juice from the beans to be added? I drained and rinsed mine, but it made it hard to puree the beans in the blender, so I ended up just adding some of the soup to the blender with the beans. Honestly, I think it would be hard to mess up this soup. It's easy, quick & goes great with cornbread & yams (we skipped the toppings, since I think they'd take away from the character of the soup).
