In this talk, we present the numerical solution of the Schwinger-Dyson equation (SDE) for dynamical
quark masses and the homogeneous Bethe-Salpeter equation
for ground-state meson masses. Based on this analysis, we computed
the masses of light hadrons (pion, rho, and kaon) for a higher number of light quark flavors
$N_f$ and for a higher number of colors $N_c$. A symmetry-preserving
Schwinger-Dyson equation (SDE) treatment of the vector-vector CI
model is the basic ingredients of this analysis.
