Cajun Is The Best!BeanBeanBeanBeanBean

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?

Cajun 15 Bean Soup The BestBeanBeanBeanBeanBean

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!!!

Cajun 15 Bean Soup: Family Favorite!BeanBeanBeanBeanBean

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!
