Cold weather means you need a warm and hearty soup. If you have leftover ham from a holiday then it’s makes this recipe even more frugal. Your family will love the comfort of ham, potato, and 5 bean soup. Hands down, you will love how easy it is to put together. This is a dump and go recipe at it’s finest. This recipe makes a lot so I like to use my 7 or 8 qt slow cooker.

Chop your potatoes, ham, celery stalks and onion. Add it to the slow cooker. Open your beans and add them in right from the can. You can rinse them if you want to reduce gassiness. Add beef broth and seasonings. Mix all together and cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.Print

Combined all ingredients in slow cooker. Cook on low for 6 to 7 hours, or on high 3 to 4 hours. I use my 7 to 8 qt slow cooker.
Rinse beans before adding if they make you super gassy. Rinsing them removes some of the excessive clear gel that is the culprit.
