This is great served with crusty bread and salad.
To help get an early start, I use the canned beans, combine all the ingredients except spinach the night before in a large microwave safe bowl and refrigerate. The next morning, give the bowl a quick heat in the microwave to take the chill off then transfer to the crock pot and proceed. Drop the spinach in a colander in the sink to thaw and drain while the soup cooks.
This is an old recipe, don't know where it comes from, it's very filling.
