Best 10 Bean Soup Mix (With Soup Recipe for Gift)

READY IN: 3hrs 20mins
Recipe by southern_gal12000

Make your own bean soup mix instead of buying it at the store. It's a great gift for friends and neighbors for the holidays. Just measure out 4 cups of bean mix into a large jar and attach a recipe card. It is healthy and easy to make and filling. Can leave out the sausage to make it vegetarian and can even use ham instead of sausage. It's good for a chilly evening when family is just arriving for the holidays and you are too busy to make a huge sit down meal for everyone. You can keep it warm in the pot and friends and family can dish up whenever they want while so much is going on. My family always went back for seconds and thirds. Make some cornbread to go along with it.

I modified the base and used home made chicken stock as opposed to just water. Soup was a nice meal overall. There are several other ways I will try and post back once they have been tested.
