Creamy Ham and Beans

Creamy Ham and Beans

Made  times

"This soup freezes well and many people who don't like ham and beans like this soup. It serves 20, depending on the appetites of people eating this delicious soup. Note: I usually soak beans overnight and then they will cook faster. Also only mash a few beans to check them for softness, don't mash them all."

  1. Add beans to boiling water and cook on high. Beans will soak up some water, so you will need to add more water later.
  2. As soon as beans can be mashed with fork, add ham and onions, let cook until beans and ham are done.
  3. Turn down to medium heat and add soup and cheese. Stir frequently while soup and cheese are mixed into the beans. When cheese is melted turn off heat and serve. Leftovers may be frozen.



"This is a great bean soup recipe. Will make again. Although had to add a little bit more spices at the end, it still was wonderful."

AWESOME. We put the beans, ham, and onion in the slow cooker for 8 hours and mixed in the soup and cheese about 20 minutes before serving. Didn't even get any to freeze

I added some diced green peppers and some cooked rattlesnake meat and this was a big hit. Everyone wanted seconds and even thirds!

Without a doubt this is the best bean (soup) we have ever had. Definitely soak the beans overnight or at least all day. I used 8 cups of chicken broth instead of the water and 1 pound of soake...

VERY easy and great for holiday leftovers. I used shredded cheddar cheese instead of the fake cheese and it was spectacular! Super yummy with sliced ciabatta bread, or italian bread.

This is a keeper. Family loved it. Even the kids. I added Italian seasoning and lots of garlic and garlic salt. I made this in the slow cooker.

One of my family's favorite wintertime comfort meals. Great with cornbread!

Great meal and other than the ham, pretty inexpensive to make - I had it cooking all day and put in the crock pot with the cheese and soup for several hours. (good with ketchup and hot sauce ad...

Great recipe....I did use less water based on other reviews stating it was too watery and I added 1 can of cream of mushroom soup. I still think I would use even less water next time to make it...
