"This is a spicy ham and bean soup."

2 (15 ounce) cans
black beans, rinsed and drained
2 (14.5 ounce) cans
great Northern beans, rinsed and drained
1 (14 ounce) can
quartered artichoke hearts, drained
1 (14.25 ounce) can
baby corn, drained and cut into pieces
2 (4.5 ounce) cans
sliced mushrooms, drained
1 (4 ounce) can
chopped green chilies
potatoes, peeled and chopped
4 large cloves
chopped fresh rosemary
chopped fresh parsley
chopped fresh thyme
ground black pepper
cayenne pepper, or more to taste
dry red wine
water to cover
I left out the mushrooms, leeks, chilis, and artichokes. I had to reduce the potato, carrot and celery to one each due to the size of my crock pot.
Really easy and good recipe. I did omit the mushrooms and leeks. It is a bit on the spicy side and my kids did not like only for that reason. Next time I will not add the green chilis and chili powder. Would recommend to anyone!
Quite good with some modifications, mostly because of what I had on hand. Ingredient changes were: 1.5# sliced ham, fresh mushrooms, a slightly larger can of green chilies, 3 carrots, 2T Italian Herb seasoning (in place of fresh rosemary, parsley & thyme), 1t Old Bay w/ Blackened Seasoning (in place of Creole), 1T Morton Nature's Seasons blend (in place of white pepper, black pepper, and salt), port instead of dry red wine & omitted black beans, corn, brown sugar & cayenne. In Step 1, I sauteed leek and garlic with the ham to develop more flavor. I'm guessing the 'water to cover' for me was ~2C. The house smelled great while the slow cooker did its magic. The end result was a hearty & savory dish that has some zing (from the artichokes and chilies, I guess) so its neither sweet nor too spicy. Great for winter lunches and suppers!
If you follow the recipe, what you get is a sickeningly sweet and excessively spicy mess--and lots of it. I left out the green chilis and it was still overly spicy.
I can't see myself repeating this one.
This was an interesting recipe. I had to leave out the potatoes and mushrooms due to my husband's preference and the rest of the ingredients filled my crock pot to the top! (I have a 6 qt one) so be careful if you prep ahead of time. I also left out the brown sugar because of dietary restrictions and it tasted fine to me, with the natural sweetness of the ingredients. The ham makes it salty so I probably could have cut the salt or left it out altogether. Overall something different for the crock pot and I would probably make this again... maybe using chicken instead of ham. Thanks!
