Grandma B's Bean Soup
This dish is great, family loves it! As others suggested, I added chicken stock in place of some water, added bay leaves, and black and red pepper to spice it up. And, used diced ham steak with bone. My 19 year old son adds shredded cheese to his, and says it takes a "great" meal to "fantastic!"
Some reviewers have commented about the beans coming out very mushy. Please note, beans have different cooking times, so can't necessarily be substituted without considering this and adjusting cooking time. For example, great northern beans take much less time to cook than navy beans. So, if you only have a few hours to cook this dish, great northern might be the way to go. However, if you are going to cook in crockpot all day and don't want mush, navy beans will work much better.
