Whoever said soup isn't a meal? They apparently have never had this hearty, hunger-crushing beef and bean soup. That's right — hunger-crushing. Serve this soup up anytime during the week. It's the perfect after-school or post-practice meal, and your family will be ever grateful after eating this dish, made right in your slow cooker.
You first need to brown the ground beef in a skillet. Be sure to drain off any excess fat. Next just throw everything right into the slow cooker, let it go and take a break! Five hours later, you have a wonderful beefy stew filled with tomatoes, three kinds of plump beans and a touch of Cajun spice. Serve this wonderful soup with oven-roasted zucchini, served on the side or mixed right into the soup! Enjoy!
