In a large pot, add the beans and ham.
Add the chicken stock and carrots, celery and cook in medium- low heat.
Add pepper to your taste preference (I add a layer over half the dish and call it good)
Cook over medium heat stirring occasionally
The soup needs to cook until the carrots and celery are softened.
Take a potato masher and mash the beans a bit to thicken up the soup.
Remove from heat once the carrots are cooked, serve and enjoy.
