Baked Bean Soup
6 cups water
4 cups Baked Beans (in molasses)
1-1/2 cups canned tomatoes
1 large onion, chopped
3 stalks celery, chopped
1-1/2 teaspoons chili powder
Salt and pepper
Put the water, 3 cups of the baked beans, the onion, celery, tomatoes, and chili powder in a large pot. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered, for 30 minutes.
Carefully puree the mixture in a blender or food processor, or mash and beat by hand until smooth. Return to the pot, add the reserved 1 cup of beans and reheat after adding salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with a salad and some nice, dense bread.
