15 bean soup recipe

Here is the recipe I used for my bean soup. Its actually almost identical to the one provided on the back of the dried bean package.

1 20oz pkg of 15 bean soup (I use Hurst’s HamBeens brand pkg of dried beans)
1 medium sized onion, diced
1 can 14oz Diced Tomatoes
1 tsp Chili powder
4 tbs of liquid lemon juice
3 tsp diced garlic (I used pre-diced garlic from jar)
Optional: 1lb meat
(I use pulled pork meat) or you can use ham, ham hocks or smoked sausage


  1. rinse beans
  2. put the rinsed beans in large pot with 10 cups water
  3. bring to rapid boil. Reduce heat, cover and continue to boil for about 1 1/2 hour, stir occasionally.
  4. after boiling, add ingredients and simmer covered for 30-45 minutes
  5. 1-2 minutes before cooking is complete, add any additional condiments or seasoning of choice (I used a small packet of Ham seasoning that was provided in the package of dried beans), salt & pepper to taste
