  1. I made the Ham and Beans yesterday. The mixture was very thin and I did add exactly what the recipe said. I decided to put in 1 can of diced tomatoes and Hunt’s pasta sauce and it was thicker and delicious. The flavor was delicious but I still wonder what happened with the original recipe. I used the regular 15 Bean Soup Mix.

  2. Can you tell me how you would cook this in a crockpot, please and thank you 😊

  3. Super easy to make! My family thought I put a lot of effort in it because it took so long & I’m gonna let them think that LOL 🙂

  4. This was delicious!! Definitely making this one again, and perfect for this time of year. Thanks for this awesome recipe, Julia!!
