Crock-Pot 15 Bean and Ham Soup
The day before I made this super yummy recipe for Crock-Pot 15 Bean and Ham Soup I had cooked up a picnic ham in the crock-pot. Once we were done with the ham we were left with a huge ham bone with some yummy attached ham that can be sort of hard to get off. Instead of trying to pry that stubborn ham off the bone I decided to use it in a delicious soup.
I scrounged around in my pantry and found a package of 15 bean soup hiding behind a box of cereal or something. It was just begging me to turn it into some amazing soup.
15 bean soup is really just a mixture of beans. Usually containing the following beans: Northern, Pinto, Large Lima, Blackeye, Garbanzo, Baby Lima, Green Split, Kidney, Cranberry, Small White, Pink, Small Red, Yellow Split, Lentil, Navy, White Kidney, Black Bean. Some packages come with a seasoning packet while some are just the beans. You can usually find the bean mix in the section of your local grocery store where they sell other dried beans. Or, you can purchase some online at stores such as Amazon – HERE.
