    1-2 Tbsp. olive oil

    1 onion, chopped

    1 carrot, chopped

    2 cloves garlic, minced

    1/3 lb. smoked ham, cubed

    1 can navy beans

    1 packet chicken bouillon

    2 cups water

    Salt and pepper to taste

    In a large pot saute the onion, carrot and garlic in the olive oil until  all are tender.  Add the ham, beans, bouillon and water.  Simmer until heated thoroughly.  Remove half of mixture to food processor or blend, puree and return to the pot.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Serves 4.

    I used a hambone and more water than 2 cups as I made a larger pot.  Just chopped all my veggies  (I used celery in mine, too) up fine and tossed in the pot.  I have a bit left for my lunch today.  I love bean soup whether it is with ham or bacon anytime.  (This happened to be the recipe that was on the Goya Navy Beans can) and you can adjust it to your liking.   Hope you enjoy.

    Thanks, that sounds good.   Will have to print that off and try it on one of these chili mornings.  I love most all kinds of soup.

    Dad was a Navy Chief, I grew up eating Navy Beans/soups, didn’t like  them, he said to add Ketchup and they would be just like Pork-n-Beans. Joyce doesn’t like Navy beans at all, that’s something we’ve never had as married adults :-) We do eat most garden beans and peas but I don’t eat Limas or Butter beans, I sure shelled many a pan of them growing up though. I haven’t had SOS since I got out of the USAF :lol:

    Used to have SOS when growing up at home a lot of times.  We liked it, but then we didn’t have it as often as you did, I am sure!  I don’t like lima beans and never did.  I do eat butter beans occasionally.  A lot of people use catsup on beans.   I buy Grandma Brown’s Baked Beans and add brown sugar/mustard to it when I put it in casserole.  I do mine in microwave for 3-4 min., but in winter put in regular oven with other oven dishes sometimes.
