|Slow Cooker Chicken and White Bean Soup|
I have very much enjoyed being able to develop recipes in the past year using Hurst’s Beans. They specialize mostly in seasoned dried beans that are found in most grocers in the U.S. You can follow the easy recipes on the back of the package or you can be creative and mix it up a bit. If you want to find more recipe ideas using Hurst’s products make sure to follow them on their facebook page. Some of the recipes that I’ve created are cheesy bacon bean dip, slow cooker cheddar, bacon and bean dip, smoky 15 bean soup with sausage, pork tomatillo chili and cajun ham and bean soup. I’ve loved all of these recipes but this new one is by far our family’s favorite! It is chock full of good stuff in every single bite. I think that’s what makes it so good. Plus the seasonings in it are super yummy. You definitely need to put this on your menu this week because I’m positive you’re going to love it!

For this particular soup, I used Hurst’s Slow Cooker Bacon and Beans. Out of all of the products I’ve tried I think that I like the seasoning in these beans the best. I just don’t think that you can go wrong with bacon seasoning. MMMMMMM–bacon! Plus, I personally really like white beans and pinto beans. I do feel that this soup is almost better the next day. Soup seems to be like that, doesn’t it?

Tiffany, where do you live? I'll find out if they are available in your area yet!
I'm not sure what to sub for the seasoning packet…it is like the secret to the awesomeness of the soup. Maybe you could order the beans from them directly: 1-800-HAMBEEN
