“Tasty fifteen bean soup with a southwestern flair! I cook it in a slow cooker beginning the night before, and it is a hot meal when we get home from work the next day.”

Terri, Your recipe calls for one pound of bacon but doesn't say what to do with it!! Can you clear this up for me.



This was great! I swapped out the bacon for kielbasa and it was awesome. I took it to our church Christmas pot luck and it was gone. I will make this over and over again.



The only thing I changed was to add a can of stewed tomatoes per the package instructions. I also purchased a mix that included a cajun seasoning packet, so I added that as well. I used a pound of center cut ham - diced it up and left the bone in the soup to add more smokey ham flavor!
