Chicken 15 Bean Soup Recipe

The beans is one of the most  nutritious food that you can eat that is high in protein.   According to the US Dry Bean Council, beans are naturally low in fat, are free of saturated fat and trans-fat, and are a cholesterol-free source of protein compared to meat-based proteins. Research shows that a diet including beans may reduce your risk of heart disease.  Because of its natural source of  antioxidants and phytochemicals, beans can reduce  the  risks of certain cancers, according to research.  You can read more about health benefits of beans here.
Anyway, I sawe thi  15 bean soup pack  at the store and thought of trying it since I love  beans.  Recipe below by Hurst's Hambeens.
Ingredients
  • 20 oz 15 bean soup
  • 1/2 to 1lb boneless, skinless chicken breast, cubed
  • 1/2 to 1 lb smoked sausage, sliced (I did not add this to mine)
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup celery, diced
  • 1/2 cup carrots, diced
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tbsp butter

Procedure:

  • Rinse the beans and put it in a large pot, cover with 8 cups of water.  Allow beans to soak overnight.  Drain the water after soaking  the beans.
  • Add 8 cups of fresh water.
  • Bring beans to a boilm reduce heat,  and simmer covered for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
  • After simmering the beans, in a large skillet, melt butter.  Saute the onion, celery, carrots, garlic, and chicken over medium  heat for ten minutes.
  • After beans have simmered, add sauteed ingredients, sliced sausage and contents of seasoning packet to the beans.
  • Cover and simmer for another 30 minutes or until  beans are tender.  Salt and pepper to taste.

I am telling you, it is delicious.
We ate it with the scones that my daughter made. After I ate, I was ready to take a nap lol.
I also  baked some Reese's Peanut Butter and Chocolate rolls.  I love this kind of soup especially during winter season. It can really warms you up.  I am going to try the beef flavored one next time since my husband has been hinting for me to make another pot of this delicious   soup!

That would certainly be filling and sure to warm you right up on a cold winter's day or night! I never heard of a package which contains 15 different kinds of beans--I'm thinking bean salad here!

Beans are staple in my pantry since I 'banned' any kind of meat and poultry in my kitchen almost 4 years ago. I love beans prepared any way. They are my main source of protein. I should try this recipe soon before temps change to unbearable heat :-)
