Last night, I put the beans in my large slow cooker and covered with cold water to soak all night.
Early this morning, I drained the water off, and rinsed them again and cover with fresh water.
The bag comes with a seasoning packet, I bought the HEB brand this time, and I am not liking the seasoning so far, seem to have a lot of oregano or some other herb! I did add some garlic powder, salt, black pepper, and smoked sausage. You could also add chicken, pork, ground beef, ground turkey, you get the idea.
Just follow the directions on the bag. There are other brands of 16 bean soup, my favorite is Hurst Hambeens!
My taste has been off, so makes it hard for me to cook right now. Many things I eat taste very hot like they have jalapeño peppers in them, but they do not.
So, I guess we will see what it taste like at dinner tonight!
I am making cornbread salad for a side and cherry cobbler for dessert!
