Our original "on the bag" recipe for Cajun 15 Bean Soup.
This is a wonderful recipe! Please try it!!
I always bake a big ham for Thanksgiving and with the leftover hambone and ham, I add it to the pot of soup. It's the best ever and my son-in-law is asking for it even before the holidays! The cajun style is the best but I'm having a hard time finding it in the stores in NC. Any reason why?
I use the italian sausage (mild or hot) links sliced in half and then cut about 1/4 inch thick. I also add 2 cups of chicken broth just to cut the heat a little bit. If you like your soup to be more soupy and not as thick, you can leave about 1/4 of the cooked beans out so this along with the chicken broth gives you more broth without weaking the flavor too much. I could eat this soup every day - Yummy!!!
My mom started making this soup when I was a teenager, and my whole family loves it. She makes it according to the package directions and she always makes sweet cornbread and fried potatoes and onions. It's good as a soup, or with cornbread crumbled in it, or as the rest of the family eats it with cornbread and fried taters directly in it!
Best Bean Soup in the world would suggest it to anyone. Trouble is no store's carry it right now in midwest everyone out of it
