Description

It might be called Cowboy Bean SOUP but it trends more towards a chili. It has a nice, rich smoky flavor because of the secret ingredient!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Lean Ground Beef
  • 16 ounces, weight Can Of Baked Beans
  • ¼ cups Lightly Packed Brown Sugar
  • ½ cups Yellow Mustard
  • ½ cups Ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Liquid Smoke
  • 1 can (15 Oz. Can) Black Eyed Peas
  • 1 can (15 Oz. Can) Garbonzo Beans
  • 1 can (15 Oz. Can) Navy Beans
  • 1 can (15 Oz. Can) Kidney Beans

Preparation

Brown and drain grease from ground beef and put in your slow cooker.

Add beans, liquid and all, to the slow cooker.

Add the rest of the ingredients and stir together well.

Put the lid on your slow cooker, turn the heat on low and walk away. A quick stir now and again won’t kill the dish, but it might leave you sneaking a taste.

NOTE:

This is also great with ground turkey or chicken. While the baked beans ARE ESSENTIAL, you may use whatever kinds of beans you like for the other four cans. Also, the quantities for the additional ingredients are estimates; use these to taste. I love a lot of liquid smoke in mine, but my brother puts next to none in. It’s all about what tastes good to you!

This was pretty tasty. I used ground turkey, which made the resulting soup lighter in color. I think it would look more appetizing with ground beef (which I’ll try next time). I used the baked beans as directed but for the cans of other beans, I used up what I had in my pantry: garbanzo, dark red kidney, black, and pinto.

I had to cook mine on high in the slow cooker (I was late in getting started). It had 4 hours to cook and turned out great. The whole family liked it, even the picky kids.

Thanks!
