If I wanted a thick bean soup, I'd follow the recipe but would reduce the amount of liquid called for.

Sometimes what i do if i have a watery bean recipe, is when it is finished , i take some of the beans + some of the broth, blend it up, then return it to the pot.

I've never had much luck with the mixed bean soups as the different types of beans cook at different rates.

I use an immersion blender to puree bean soups. They end up thick with a nice creamy texture.

I don't have any mixed bean recipes but do have a very good black bean soup and navy bean soup recipes if you're interested.

Hi Lenny, glad I saw this post! You like your beans just they way I do. Thick and hearty vs. brothy/soupy. I have some excellent think and hearty bean soup recipes, but this one I think is just what you are looking for:
Cajun 15 Bean Soup w/ Smoked Turkey Sausage

Let me know what you think!

Thanks

some navy bean soup recipes call for mashed potatoes.

that has been my experience as well. usually do just one kind at a time. soak overnight, put is crock pot. us use chicken broth and just to cover the beans. add whatever, ham hock, onion, carrots, your choice. have had no watery soup. but the blending method sounds like it would work.
