Wanted a soup with a bit more oomph than our usual so this recipe is based on Emeril's. Used less oil then he did, added celery & carrot because we had them on hand (should have used a cup of each), and mashed some of the beans at the end to thicken the soup. Since we seeded the jalapeno but left the ribs in for more heat and used half ham/half chicken stock we probably got a sweeter & hotter result. Pretty good.
