Notes about this recipe

    I love chili and soup and this recipe is the perfect combination. But I don't like ham hocks or kielbasa so in I increase the beans (1 cup white, 2/3 cup red, 2/3 cup blackeyed peas, 1/3 black beans, 1/3 mixed yellow and green split peas) and after soaking overnight and rinsing, simmer them with a pound of sliced bacon (naturally smoked) in 12 cups of water, lid off, for 2 hours, then remove bacon (reserve for other use or throw away), add a little water if too thick, then 28 oz. Marzano tomatoes blended 1/2 a minute with handblender added to the beans with chopped onion, 1 heaping tablespoon of chili powder, 2 tsps. ground cumin, red pepper flakes to taste, and, instead of lemon, 4 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar, 1/2 cup chopped parsley and 1/4 tsp. of salt. Simmer for another hour, stirring frequently, until is thick as you like. For a hardy nutritious meal add shredded poached chicken, diced avocado and shredded cheddar cheese, etc.

    Pg. 322. Had some wonderful all-natural kielbasa from my local purveyor at the farmers market, so decided to make this soup. Used flageolets, kidney beans, garbanzos, and black beans. Made some changes: significantly increased the spices as the amounts seemed way too low; used cilantro instead of parsley, as I think it pairs better with chili powder and cumin. The soup turned out very spicy, which we like. Served it with grated pecorino romano, chopped cilantro, sour cream.
