Erica, Thank you so much for this recipe.
I made this soup with fresh white frijoles because I had them.
And it was delicious!!!
I made this soup. While it was cooking, it smelled soooo wonderful. It tasted even better.
Made this tasty soup after having one at a Colombian restaurant. And it definitely was easy to make, especially with ingredients readily in grocery stores. I simmered with the lid off to thicken the soup.
New to your site. Can I use Navy beans for this recipe or what other kind of white bean is there?
