15 Bean Soup
It's Tempt My Tummy Tuesday! My sister, Lisa, and I co-host this blog carnival. We share recipes, kitchen and cooking tips, restaurant reviews, and anything food related that you want to share.

Last week I was in the mood for some beans and rice. I had a bag of Hambeens Cajun 15 Bean Soup. Now, as you well know by now, I don't always follow the recipes like they appear anywhere. I'm a fan of making things my own way and with the ingredients I have on hand.
So, You are more than welcome to check out the recipe on the back of the bag HERE. This is my version of their recipe. I served it over rice.
In my crock pot, I put the beans and about 3 quarts of water. I then added 2 cans of diced tomatoes. Turn crock pot to high and covered it. After two hours I added 1 onion medium chopped in large pieces and a clove of garlic chopped. After 2 more hours I added 1 link of smoked sausage cut up. I then let it continue to cook one more hour. In the last 30 minutes I put in HALF of the Cajun seasoning that came with the beans. I wanted the kid to eat it and I did not want it to be too spicy.
When it was all said and done... it was good! I served it over rice.
