Cajun Bean Soup

Share now:

I absolutely love this version of Hurst’s Hambeens 15 Bean Soup, and so does Russell, even though he can’t stand to eat beans of any kind, beyond green beans.  I think he ate too many beans as a kid. LOL! This version of Cajun Bean Soup is great for those chilly fall days when you and your family are on-the-go and you know there won’t be time to cook.  Prep it in the morning.  Cook it in the crockpot throughout the day and come home to a warm and hearty meal that everyone will love.

You can follow the directions on the bag, but I’ve created my own version that is absolutely delicious!

Juice of 1 lemon

3-4 cloves minced garlic

32 oz box low-sodium beef broth

3 cups of water



Hot Sauce – to your taste

I make a pot and for the two us, we have a meal that is filling.  We have enough for leftovers another night during the week (This is one of those meals that tastes even better the second night.), PLUS enough Cajun Bean Soup to freeze for another time.  (Have I mention lately how I love to cook once, eat twice – or more!)

Here’s to making a delicious crockpot soup and RESETTING your life!
