Spicy Bean Soup (Slow Cooker)

READY IN: 4hrs 15mins
Recipe by airforce_chick315

From Better Homes and Gardens Biggest Book of Slow Cooker Recipes. I love this soup a lot. Sometimes I serve it with garlic bread. I substitute the pepper jack cheese for sharp cheddar, and instead of putting the cheese in the big pot I put it into the separate bowls. I forgot to add that i don't use the garbanzo beans!

Had some old cans that needed to be used up, one of them being garbanzo beans. So I tossed this together subbing black beans for the limas and canned french cut green beans drained for the frozen. This was very quick to put together with a nice outcome. It passed the husband taste test, he really enjoyed it. I do not like garbanzo beans so I let him enjoy it all :) Thank you for posting this quick, simple and tastey soup.
