I did change the recipe a bit so I guess i'm not rating the exact recipe but this was amazing. I double this recipe plus I added 2 extra cups of beef broth (6 all together), didn't have minced garlic so used 6 fresh cloves instead, didn't double the wine or apple (next time I will double it just didn't have enough wine to double!), and I also added maybe 2 slices of bacon only to the soup and used the rest for garnish as I find then you can add the amount you want (and the bacon stays crispy). I also didn't have any pinto beans so I added a can of red kidney beans and a can of chick peas...turned out very yummy! Also used the suggestions to use the bacon grease to fry the onion, celery, and garlic. I recommend this lots and lots!
