"I'm Too Tired to Cook" Bean with Bacon Soup

Tina Barber


I work from 10 to 11 hours a day at my nursery retail store, and most nights I'm exhausted by the end of the workday. I love being able to just throw things in the crock pot and have it ready at the end of the day!

Prep time doesn't include soaking of beans. I soak mine overnight.

  1. Put all ingredients in the crock pot, put it on low and let it cook between 7 and 8 hrs.
  2. Mash it with a potato masher just before serving.
  3. I don't put any spices in it (actually I had none available yesterday) so we just salt and pepper to taste.
