Crockpot Bean Soup is one of my all time favorites. Most of the time it is a last minute dish I make. I usually have the ingredients on hand to make it. One reason I like it so much is because it is effortless to make. You can always mix up the meats that you put it, but today I made it with bacon and sausage.
This Bean Soup is the perfect family meal. It makes a huge pot, so if you don’t eat it all you can always freeze it for later. It freezes great! Now as much as we all love coming home on a cold day to a hot pot of yummy goodness aka Crockpot Bean Soup, this is a perfect meal for any time of the year. I don’t care how hot outside it gets, it won’t stop me from making my Crockpot Bean Soup. Not to mention that here in Texas, it’s not cold very often lol.
These beans are super simple to make. It takes only a few minutes to put together and one of the best parts is that there is NO SOAKING REQUIRED! You pretty much dump in all the ingredients and set it to low and you are all set.
One thing I can’t ever seem to do is leave it alone. I’ll usually come back every 30 minutes to an hour to stir it. One thing I like to do with my Bean Soup is after a few hours I’ll take my spoon and mash up some of the beans. I feel it gives it a better consistency. And another thing I love in my beans is jalapenos. I love making my own homemade jalapenos, so I’ll always add some in about half way through cooking. And to kick it up even more I’ll add a bunch of the juice. That really gives it a kick!
