SLOW COOKER CAJUN BEAN TURKEY SOUP RECIPE

I make turkey dinner for pretty much every holiday but I also make it when it’s not a holiday so I can reap the benefits of the leftover turkey (the best part in my opinion)!! Leftover turkey is perfect for quick and easy meals and in particular, belly warming soups!

INGREDIENTS:

1 package HamBeens® Cajun 15 BEAN SOUP
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 large onion, diced
1 cup diced celery
2 cloves chopped garlic
1/2 lb. smoked sausage, sliced
2 cups diced leftover turkey
4 cups low sodium chicken broth
2 cups water
1 can diced tomatoes (14.5 oz)
salt & pepper to taste
parsley for garnish (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

Rinse beans and remove any debris.
Place beans, onion, pepper, celery, garlic, chicken broth, water, and turkey a 6 quart slow cooker.
Cook on high 5-7 hours or until beans are tender.
Add seasoning packet, sausage and tomatoes.
Cook for an additional 30 minutes.
Serve with cornbread.
NOTES:
No soaking is required for this recipe. If you do soak your beans, reduce water by 1 cup and check for doneness at 4-6 hours.
