Recipe - Wintery Day Bean Soup

A delicious meal-in-a-bowl.


1 tablespoon salt
Water to cover
2 quarts fresh water
2 cups ham or smoked sausage, diced or sliced into 1-inch pieces (I used leftover pulled pork from the freezer)
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 can (28 oz.) tomatoes
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste

Rinse beans and place in a large kettle with salt and enough water to cover beans. Soak beans overnight. Drain and replace in kettle. Add fresh water and ham or sausage (or meat of choice). Simmer for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Add onion, garlic, chili powder, tomatoes, and lemon juice. Simmer for 45 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot with crackers or corn bread.

Until next time...

  1. That soup sounds good to me. Seems perfect for a cold and snowy winter day.

    1. It is very good, Jean. It called for ham or smoked sausage, but I have quite a bit of pulled pork in the freezer left over from food brought in when John passed away, so I decided to throw some of that in and it worked beautifully! And I love using the mixed beans! Such variety!
