"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."

1 (8 ounce) package
15 bean soup mix
2 (4 ounce) cans
canned green chile peppers, chopped

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.
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.
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!
YUM! I know this passed the test when my hesitant husband completely polished off his bowl and went back for more. I didn't have any bacon, but I DID have some smoked sausage, made the switch, and it was great. I didn't cook the beans overnight, I just soaked them. Really easy and an awesome "cold weather meal" (words of the aforementioned hubby.) This will make an appearance on my dinner table again!
Changed it a bit, but thank-you so much for letting me know that I COULD cook beans in the crock-pot with-out soaking 8 hours or having to use a stove ( which I don't have presently) to pre-cook them first. Turned Out GREAT !!!!Thanks again !!!!! Is permantly in my recipe box !!!
Very smokey flavor; a little too much bacon though; the soup would taste good even without the bacon, or with just a few slices in it. Make sure you like a lot of spice with this recipe; you could tone the chili powder down a bit. Overall, very tasty and I would make this again!
I make this recipe all the time. I add more chopped chicken and or sausage and less than a pound of the bacon the recipe calls for. Its a favorite!!
easy to make and tastes great! Does it get any easier?
