I know it's way too hot for soup, but I made it anyway!! I love soup and it's an all in one pot meal! I love any kind of bean soup, and this was a good one! I served it with some homemade cornbread and a salad.....YUM!

Arizona Mountain Soup

1 1/4 c. dry pinto beans
3 slices bacon, chopped
2 med. onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 (16 oz.) can tomatoes, cut up
1 1/2 c. brown rice, cooked
2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 to 2 c. ham, browned hamburger, or other cooked meat (optional)

Rinse beans in 5 quart kettle. Combine beans and 3 cups water. Cover. Let stand overnight (or, bring to boiling. Reduce heat; simmer 2 minutes. Let stand 1 hour). Do not drain. Simmer, covered, 2 hours or until beans are tender. Drain reserving 2 cups liquid. In Dutch oven cook bacon until almost crisp. Add onions and garlic. Cook and stir until vegetables are tender but not brown. Stir in the cooked pinto beans, tomatoes, rice, salt, paprika and pepper. Add reserved bean liquid and 2 cups water. Add meat if desired. Bring mixture to boiling. Cover and simmer 1 hour, stirring occasionally. If soup is too thick, add water. Serves 8.
