Step Three: Put the lid on the slow cooker (I love using a liner for easy cleanup) and cook on high for 5-6 hours or low 8-9 hours, or until the beans and vegetables are tender and cooked.

Step Four: Once done, ladle up and serve with shredded cheese, green onions, sour cream or any other toppings you would like.

See how easy it is to make this crockpot bean soup! Delicious and satisfying.

Storing Leftovers

Place your leftover soup in the fridge in an airtight container. The soup will store for 3-5 days in the fridge. You can freeze the soup as well but the texture of the beans will be softer once thawed and reheated.

You can freeze your soup for 2-3 months in a freezer approved container or freezer bag.

Notes

Bacon - Any cut or style of bacon works. Or if you want you can replace the bacon with ham or ham hocks if you prefer.

Bone Broth - Adding bone broth in replace of broth or stock will help add more nutrients and richness to the soup.

Soaking Beans - You do not soak the beans ahead of time. If you prefer you are welcome to soak your beans overnight in 6 cups of water.
