Bean soup?  The simple bean soup that I make is Garbanzo. Salted water, bay leaf, evoo, chickpeas. I also make a simple bean soup with Great Northern - water, beans, four smoked ham hocks.  Pintos or red beans (one in the same), water &  salt pork. I generally add red kidney beans to chili but you can also cook them and use for sides or to top a salad.

 In Kentucky where I was born, and other parts of Appalacia, soup bean are what som others call pinto beans. Usually served with cornbread. If that's what you're asking for, this is the traditional way to make them.

Pinto Beans

1 pound bag dried pinto beans
salt (to taste)
Ham hocks, salt pork or 3 Tablespoons of Canola oil or lard
One large onion, chopped

Pick through Pinto Beans and remove rocks and imperfect beans, rinse well and drain. Place in large pot with a thick bottom, and a lid. Cooking in this way will cause them to become a beautiful reddish color in a thick soup. My mom and granny called them “Soup Beans”. Place beans and Ham Hocks or other seasoning in the pot and fill almost to the top with water. Bring beans to a boil and reduce heat to medium/low. They will continue to cook and you will have to add more HOT water until beans are tender. When tender, add salt to taste, 2 tablespoons Canola oil and one large chopped onion. Continue to simmer...as soup begins to thicken you may have to lower temperature. Be sure that there is an adequate amount of water, cooking down to make a thick red soup. When done, (about 3 hours later) cook the juice down. You can remove the lid when the beans are done and turn the temperature back up to cook down the soup.

Glad I could help. What do you serve with them? I like fried potatoes, sliced tomatoes and green onions, and corn bread of course.

 My mom loves banana peppers. She grows them and makes vinegar pepper sauce from them. Unfortunately I have a food intolerance for peppers. :)
