15 Beans Swimming In Soup

The calendar says it's time for soup making, even if temperatures in the South indicate otherwise. Wherever you are, and however chilly your season might be right now, it's a great time for this wonderful 15 Bean Slow-Cooker Soup! It's perfect for an evening in front of the fire.

16 oz dry bean soup mix
1 small onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 cans of chicken broth
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp celery salt
1 dash Cayenne pepper (the spice, not my cat)
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 bay leaf
2 links smoked sausage, sliced
(The amounts of spices are an estimate - I always use more, just to get some extra flavor. Please adjust to your personal taste.)

1. Place dry beans in slow cooker and add broth. Add all other ingredients except sausage. Add water to cover.

2. Turn slow cooker to low for 8-10 hours, adding water as the beans soak.

3. Add sausage 1-2 hours prior to serving.

4. Serve over rice or cornbread.
