    weekend cooker's Note:

    Great soup to start the night before or early in the morning. If you prefer a thicker soup, mash some of the beans before adding the tomatoes. Taco seasoning and bacon, add a nice touch for this cool weather soup.

      I tagged this in For Your Consideration game by just reading the ingredients. I'm not sure that all of this rime is really needed, It's is a two day project, mind you it's certainly not difficult and most of the time is just waiting. I replaced the bacon with ham as I don't often have bacon in the house and when I do it's turkey bacon and it was excellent with ham. The beans (Great Northern, pinto and red beans) were very well cooked and on the verge of becoming mushy 6 hrs into the slow cooking and that's the only reason for the 4 stars instead of 5. The soup was great last evening with garlic and parsley biscuits. So tasty and comforting. I would recommend this. You may not have the early finish time that I did but you might. I'm convinced that the new slow cookers all use a considerably higher heat that the older ones. did.
