Fresh Navy Bean & Soup

I remember my mother telling me when I was a kid that bean soup was a staple in her house, she would say my mother mad all kinds of bean soups and navy bean & ham was her favorite .

When I was growing up my mother kept that tradition of making bean soups and the navy bean came out to be my all time favorite and I'm sharing it with my children today and they really love it, I will admit I do make it in different ways by sometimes adding a ham hock to the water o some smoke turkey wings to my water this is just a way for me to start my broth and add make my flavor profile but if I don't have the time I have a quicker still tasty way to get it done fast .....follow me.

Fresh Navy Bean & ham Soup

6 cups of chicken stock

5 cups of dried navy beans, soaked overnight and drained ( pick out any bad looking beans)

1 pound of honey glaze ham, cubed ( you can get this from your deli counter at your local supermarket)

1 can 15 ounces of corn, drained

1 can 4 ounces mild diced green chilies, drained

1 white onion, diced

1 tablespoon of Tabasco sauce (optional).....I like the taste it provides

1 tablespoon of olive oil

Sea salt and pepper to taste


To begin with this soup turn on your crock-pot then add your chicken stock, then grab out a large skillet and add the olive oil getting it hot add the onions cook for a few minutes then add your honey glaze ham cubes and cook for another 2 minutes while that is cooking add your navy beans to your crock-pot.

After adding the navy beans to the crock-pot you can now add the corn and green chilles to the ham and the onions the juice and all let simmer for 1 minute then add to the crock-pot cover; cook on low 8 to 10 hours or until beans are tender, taste then adjust the flavors if you have to by using sea salt and pepper then serve a long side a nice piece of corn bread or a crusty hard roll. .........Happy Eating.
