One of the questions we receive the most is "can I cook 15 BEAN SOUP® beans in a crock pot or slow cooker"? The answer is: ABSOLUTELY! Try this easy to follow recipe and you will have a pot full of 15 Bean Soup waiting for you after a day of activities. See cooking tips below the recipe for more info.
been making this for myself and friends for over 20 years. this time i halved the recipe (i still used a pound of turkey smoked sausage) and it took about 6 hours in my slow cooker on medium. i added a little sriracha sauce for a garlicky kick and it was great.
I make it with two extra cups of broth and fresh ground pepper, it is so good. Next time I won't cook it longer than the recipe says, it is a little too mushy.
tossed them in the crock and used 2 smoked turkey drumsticks instead of sasuage-- added 1/4 c of white vinegar-- SOOOOO YUM!
This was delicious! I soaked the beans overnight so I used 7 cups of liquid as suggested. I had 1 cup EACH of chicken and beef broth beef broth in the fridge so I added that to 5 cups of water. I used the Christmas ham bone and 1 cup of diced ham which I browned before adding to the crock pot. Didn't have tomatoes and used red pepper flakes. To thicken I mashed 1 cup of beans the last 1/2 hr when I added the lemon juice. This will be my "go to" ham bone and 15 bean soup from now on.
I just made this recipe for the first time following it exactly as said, and everything came out perfectly. I wasn't feeling well and didn't want to have to deal with standing in front of the stove today so I dumping everything in the crockpot, slept all day, and then woke up to my house smelling like a wonderful bean soup.
Big Bonus: I didn't have to soak the beans over night and they still came out well--so I'm impressed.
