How to Make Slow Cooker 16 Bean Country Soup

This soup is ridiculously easy to make. Slice some smoked turkey sausage and chop some cooked turkey. Toss the meat into the crockpot. Add diced tomatoes, beef broth, chili powder, onion, oregano, salt, pepper, garlic, hot sauce, and a bag of 16 bean soup starter. Cover and cook on LOW all day.

Tips and Frequently Asked Questions

  • I used a bag of 16 Bean Soup Starter from Target. It is with all the other dried beans. It had a little bit of everything in the bag – lima beans, black eyed peas, pinto beans, butter beans, black beans. Pretty much any bean you know is in this bag.
  • I did not soak the beans before adding them to the crockpot.
  • Do not use the seasoning packet that came with the soup mix. I only used the beans.
  • I used smoked turkey sausage and some chopped up turkey in this soup. This would be GREAT for using up some of your leftover turkey you might have after Thursday’s holiday meal.
  • If you don’t have any roasted turkey on hand, just toss in some cooked chicken or double up on the smoked sausage. This will taste great with whatever meats you choose to use!
  • You can substitute chopped ham for the turkey. You can also add ham to the soup. YUM!
  • Here is our recipe for Slow Cooker Turkey Breast: https://www.plainchicken.com/air-fryer-turkey-breast/
  • Can 16 Bean Soup be frozen? Yes! This makes A LOT of soup. I took the leftovers and portioned it out into plastic containers and froze it for a quick meal later. Life is pretty hectic this time of year. I always welcome a quick and easy home-cooked meal!
  • Can I make 16 Bean Soup on the stovetop? Yes! Place all the ingredients in a Dutch oven, bring to a boil and simmer until the beans are soft.
