Spicy Bean Soup (Slow Cooker)

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!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In slow cooker combine canned and frozen beans, onion, chili powder, basil, and oregano. Stir in beef broth and water.
  2. Cover; cook on high for 4 hours. Stir in cheese until melted.

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.
