Slow Cooker Bean And Bacon Soup

Here’s my slow cooker bean and bacon soup for when you have that extra bacon sitting around from breakfast. Perfect bacon meal for maximum taste!

Slow Cooker Bean And Bacon Soup

Sometimes I’ll be making breakfast and I’ll cook up a bunch of bacon slices for the family and inevitably I’ll have some uncooked bacon leftover. Either throw it in the fridge to make another day or put it to other use. I like to take that bacon and use it as an ingredient in some soup I’m making for the day.

One of the soups I like to make with bacon is a bean and bacon soup. This soup has been a big hit because the mix of the taco spice and bacon is a great flavor.

Enjoy!

Ingredients

1 1/4 cups dried bean soup mix, or any combination of mixed dried beans

5 cups water

1 onion, chopped

3 cups water

4 slices fried bacon (precooked bacon works well) crumbled

1 envelope taco seasoning

2 14 oz cans diced tomatoes, undrained
