This soup is really just assembly only, as long as you’ve got the bacon and onions in the freezer. It’s a good one to keep in mind for those nights when you really don’t have time to cook, but everyone needs to be fed.
The bacon, onion and tomatoes add a lot of flavor to the beans. It reminds me of the flavor of Italian Sausage and Bean Soup.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 2-3 slices of bacon, diced and fried
- 1/2 onion, diced and cooked with bacon
- 1 can butter beans
- 1 can kidney beans
- 1 can pinto beans
- 1 can diced tomatoes, undrained
- 1 box (or 2 cans) chicken broth
- 1/2 tsp. oregano
- salt and pepper to taste
If you have the bacon and onion already cooked and frozen, pop it in the microwave to thaw a bit. Toss everything into a soup pot and heat.
That’s it! Add cornbread or a sandwich and you’re good to go.
