This was so easy and sooooo good! I used a 20 oz bag of Hurst's HamBeens 15 bean blend, added 2 peeled, diced potatoes and threw in some extra ham chunks at the end. Delish!!
This was absolutely delicious!! I did it a little differently, as I cooked the beans in plain water until they were fairly soft. I then drained them, added the other ingredients and cooked for another hour or so. I also used chicken broth in place of the water and it turned out spectacular! I am having left-overs tonight as we speak. Bill, thanks for the recipe!
This soup is the best! Simple and cheap to make...best way to use your leftover ham bone.
