Keyword dried bean soup mix, dry bean soup


Bean Base

  • 1 1/4 cup Dried Kidney Beans
  • 1 1/4 cup Dried Black Beans
  • 3/4 cup Dried Pinto Beans
  • 3/4 cup White Bean (navy)

Spice Mix (for 1 jar - you'll need to make this twice)

  • 1 tbsp Garlic Salt
  • 1 tbsp Powdered Beef Bullion Or chicken
  • 2 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1/2 tsp Chili Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • Salt to taste


How to Make the Dry Bean Base

  1. Gather all your ingredients.

  2. Using a wide-mouthed canning funnel, layer the dried beans in a glass jar.

  3. In a small dish, combine all the spices. 

  4. Place in spice mix in a small bag and add to jar.

  5. Screw on lid and store.

How to Prepare the Soup with the Mix

  1. Rinse beans to remove any debris. Soak beans overnight (add enough water to cover and an extra 1-2 inches).  I do this in my crock pot.

  2. In the morning, dump the soaking water.

  3. To the crock pot and beans add the spice packet, 1 – 2 cups of water, 2 cups of stewed or diced tomatoes (optional).

  4. I also often add a ham hock or ham bone for more flavor.

  5. Turn on to low head and cook for 4-6 hours, or until beans are tender.

    Turn crockpot down to low or warm, and let simmer until ready to serve.

  6. Garnish with sour cream, cilantro, or cheese and desired.
