3 Crockpot Soup Recipes

Expect a richness of flavor in these 3 crockpot soup recipes. Flavor that really should take a lot more effort than it does.  That's one of the great advantages to crockpot cooking - it just does it on it's own while you do something else. Every home needs a slow cooker!

Here you'll find recipes for:

16 Bean Soup (adaptable for meat or meatless)
Vegetable Beef Soup
Barbecued Beef n' Bean Soup

Using dried beans (or substitute buying them canned if you must) makes all 3 crockpot soup recipes  economical and nutritious.

Great comfort food you'll want some for tonight, some for tomorrow and some for your freezer. Serve with a whole grain and your meal is complete.
