Ground Beef Bean Soup

Updated on January 25, 2012
This is the left overs
This is the left overs

i created this recipe one fine afternoon after buying some random ingredients I thought would taste good together. Which I was right. It tasted great! It takes awhile in the crock pot. A minimum of 6-7 hours is necessary! Especially if your FILLING the crock pot like I do. Right to the brim of my 6 Qt slow cooker which definitely makes a lot of left overs.

1 lb Ground Beef
Cut up carrots (2-3 or however many you would like)
Cut up potatoes (5ish big ones or however many you would like)
Cut up onion (medium)
1 large can Kidney beans
1 large can Black Turtle Beans
1 can Water Chestnuts
1 large can diced tomatoes
2 Packs Onion soup mix
1 tsp Curry
A lot Pepper and Salt
1 tsp Flavo Magic
2 tsp Oregano
2 tsp Basil
2 tsp Thyme
2-3 tsp Bay Leaves
2-3 tsp Italian Herb Seasoning

Begin by getting the ground beef in a pan and frying it. While the beef is frying start cutting up and adding the carrots, potatoes and onion into the crock pot. Then rinse all the beans in a strainer then add them to the crock pot.. I also rinsed the water chestnuts then cut them in half so there was more and so they weren't so big, then add them to the pot as well. Be sure to check you beef! If its done just drain the grease and put it aside. Back to the pot. Sprinkle the two packages of onion soup mix over everything in the pot. Then add a lot of water. I don't really know how many cups but add enough where everything is covered and there's enough in there to make everything sort of swim around, like a soup texture! Next add the beef and stir everything around. Start adding all the spices (more if you want) and then finally the diced tomatoes. Put it on low for a minimum of 6-7 hours. Stirring every couple or few hours.

Makes A LOT Enjoy!
