I made this recipe today and my husband and I loved it. However, I reduced the salt by more than 1/2 so that is why I only gave 4 instead of 5 stars. I modified the recipe, based on most other reviewers comments and my own personal tastes. I only used one chicken bouillon cube, I reduced salt to 1/4 tsp., I used 1/4 tsp of celery seed instead of 1 tsp celery salt. I do not like Bay leaves so I omitted them. I also added ham and 1/2c chopped chiorizo sausage. Because of the spicy sausage and the fact that we like a little bit of heat, and not a lot, I only used 1/8 tsp of cayenne. I soaked the beans in water for 6 hours before using them also. I think this is a wonderful recipe, even though I made those minor changes, I was really impressed with the aroma and complex flavors of this soup. Thanks for submitting it!
