Here’s the recipe.
Easy Bean Soup from Lynn
1 onion - chopped
1 cup chopped celery with some of the leaves

Saute the all of the above ingredients in 2 TBS oil ( or bacon grease if you are from the south) until onions are translucent
Add 1 1/2 teaspoons of Emeril's Original Essence seasoning** ( I love this stuff )
**here’s a recipe from Emeril to make your own Emeril’s seasoning
Add 1 can - 15 oz diced tomatoes (if you want it spicier you could use salsa instead)
Let cook down for about 3 minutes
