Slow Cooker Honey Ham and Bean Soup

Seriously, dinner doesn’t get any easier than this. This is what I call a “Chop, Dump and Run” kind of dinner. (And if you added carrots, it would be a one dish slow cooker dinner…my absolute favorite kind.)

This soup is sweet from the honey, with a touch of smoke, and a slight bite from the chili powder and cracked pepper.

You’re sure to love the soup, the flavor, the ease in preparing and the ease in cleaning up.

Also, if I ever were to write a feeding teenage boys on a budget cookbook…this recipe would go into the Beans Chapter. In fact, that book might only have 1 chapter…Rice and Beans recipes. That’s really how I plan to get through the teenage years with these boys of mine…lots of rice and beans, mixed in with some meat and ‘tater meals, along with a ton of homemade oatmeal. *sigh*

If, in a few years, I were to write that book, would you buy it?!
