    Well since its cold and nasty out tonight I decided to make one of my favorites: Navy Bean Soup.

    Its very easy to do
    Youll need:
    3 (16 oz.) cans of navy beans.
    1 Large sweet onion
    3 Medium sized baking potatos
    1 Ham hock
    1 small cure81(or your choice) ham
    1 can of chicken broth
    some cerlery if you like
    salt
    pepper

    Chop up the onion to your liking. Throw in the pot and turn the heat up. Add in some olive oil and a little soy sauce to flavor the onions. Simmer and add a little water. Next, dump all 3 cans of beans in and the chicken broth. Bring to a boil. Cut potatos to your liking...throw in the boiling soup. Dice up the ham to your liking and throw in; also throw in the ham hock and celery. Bring to a slow boil and leave covered (boiling) for about an hour or until the potatos and onions are tender. Add salt and pepper to your liking. Enjoy!

    Its cheap, easy, fast, feeds about 6....and is great for those cold winter nights. One of my all time favorites.

    I make mine with dry beans. I cook them with 2 smoked ham hocks and let that cook for a few hours. Then I add 1 large yellow onion 4 medium carrots diced 3 celery sticks diced and 4-5 minced cloves of garlic. Then I let it cook until carrots are tender. Sometimes I will add 4-5 diced jalapenos and a handful of chopped cilantro.

    Awesome! Im sure you'll enjoy it. You can also use dry beans but I usually dont because they really need to soak overnight. Let me know how you like it.:D

    Just remember the finner you chop a pepper of any kind the spicier it will be, the heat is in the membrane and the more you chop it the more heat it will give off. So with that being said I chop mine depending on who will be eating it other than myself. If you want to get cocky try it with 2 habaneros but I would leave them whole or just cut in half, and only use them for taste unless your brave.

    Sounds good, it is definitely that time of year. I made my version the other day, too. I like to use Judion (Jewish beans) just because they are HUGE, but Lima or navy beans will work.

    Soak them over night. The next day bring to a boil with a bay leaf and some fat back. Then reduce to a simmer.

    While the beans are simmering, fry up some fresh sausage, when that is almost done drain off most of the grease and throw in a chopped up onion, and several chopped cloves of garlic. Sprinkle liberally with paprika and toss in some chunks of cured ham & cured sausage. When that is ready throw it all into the bean pot.

    If I'm using small beans like navy I'll throw in some chopped up potatoes, too. With the Jewish beans I don't bother. Let it simmer covered for about an hour. Uncover and simmer until the beans are tender. Add water as needed.

    You will have gas the next day, so plan accordingly:D
