Spicy Ham and Bean Soup

This recipe is so delicious! Plus, it's quite adaptable, too. I used a ham bone instead of ham hocks and I only had a 14 ounce can of tomatoes. The soup had plenty of hammy and tomato flavor. I also omitted the cayenne and I added just a pinch of red pepper flakes and it was still a bit spicy (I imagine with a whole tablespoon of flakes plus the cayenne, this soup would be quite blistering!). It should be noted step 11 (continue simmer until beans are soft) took over another hour - like an additional hour and 20 minutes. Even with the overnight soak and almost 3 hours of cooking, this soup is so worth it!
