I am so excited to have partnered with Hurst’s HamBeens® 15 BEAN SOUP® to bring you this belly warming recipe.  

If you have followed my blog before you’ll definitely know how much I love my Ham and Bean Soup. Everyone who tries it asks for the recipe because it’s the ultimate comfort food, and the perfect budget friendly meal!

Homemade soup is one of those meals that I love to come home to on a cold day, like a warm hug in a bowl.

I make turkey dinner for pretty much every holiday but I also make it when it’s not a holiday so I can reap the benefits of the leftover turkey (the best part in my opinion)!! Leftover turkey is perfect for quick and easy meals and in particular, belly warming soups!

Loaded with fresh beans, leftover turkey and vegetables, this easy bean soup is the perfect comforting meal!

Few things warm the belly from the inside out the way this Cajun Bean Turkey Soup recipe does! It’s absolutely loaded with flavor and stick to your ribs good.

Because this easy meal cooks in the slow cooker all day long, it’s ready to go when you are making it the perfect ending to a long work day or a welcome way to feed a house full of guests once the turkey dinner is done.

The combination of HamBeens® Cajun 15 BEAN SOUP mix, tender leftover turkey, smoky sausage, and tangy tomatoes all cooked to perfection will fill your tummy and warm your heart! I do have to say, the real secret to this perfectly seasoned soup is the delicious cajun flavor packet included with the beans.

This easy 15 Bean Soup has leftover turkey and sausage creating a delicious hearty Crock Pot Soup that everyone raves over!

You’ll be amazed at how incredibly easy it is to turn everyday humble ingredients into something extraordinary.  Not only does this soup require NO SOAKING, HamBeens Cajun 15 Bean Soup has the best variety of beans which always cook up perfectly!

This recipe makes a nice big batch of soup and it freezes perfectly which is great for busy families (and make ahead lunches).

Cajun Bean Turkey Soup Recipe Tips

Add acidic ingredients (such as canned tomatoes or lemon juice) after the beans have softened.  (These ingredients can sometimes interfere with the rehydration process).

Salt can also interfere with rehydration so it is best added after the beans have softened.

Smoked turkey adds amazing flavor to this recipe.

Add tomatoes with chilis for an extra kick if you like spice.

Any type of smoked sausage works well.  Frying your sausage before adding to the soup adds great flavor.

Both the dark and white leftover turkey meat cook to perfection in this recipe.

If you don’t have sausage on hand, chopped ham or even crisp fried bacon are great alternatives to add a hint of smokiness.

HamBeens Cajun 15 bean Soup is the start of this recipe with the best beans and an amazing Cajun flavoring packet making sure this soup is perfectly seasoned every time.

HamBeens Cajun 15 Bean Soup can be found in the dry bean section of almost any grocery store (or you can order them online). Along with the beans, a seasoning packet is included in each package making it simple and perfectly seasoned every time!

This soup comes out nice and thick & hearty, just the way we love it! If you prefer a thinner consistency, add one extra cup of broth or water to your slow cooker.

While soaking the beans in this recipe definitely is not required, if you have already soaked your beans, you can reduce the liquid in the recipe by 1 cup.

Scooping up a big bowl of 15 bean soup loaded with leftover turkey and tender sausage is a family favorite meal. It's easy to make as it cooks up effortlessly in the slow cooker all day!

This Cajun Bean turkey soup recipe can be served right out of the Crock Pot with crushed tortillas crowning the bowl, but it’s also delicious served over rice or with a big piece of fresh cornbread for dunking!

This easy turkey soup recipe is the perfect way to enjoy leftovers and one of our all time favorites!

  1. Made these in my instant pot. only thing i did different was use ham hocks with andouille sausage, i also used the tomatoes with chili’s and had to add a bit more water. I think by pressure cooking them the water evaporated more making it really thicker. Of course a touch more of salt and pepper to taste.

  2. Can I use turkey broth instead of chicken?

  3. Most people think of soup as a cold weather food but as I am a soup lover it makes no difference to me if it’s 100 degrees!!! That being said, I live in the deep south, have visited New Orleans & would move there just for the food! So I decided to give this recipe a try yesterday & it is absolutely delicious. Not too spicy with just a subtle amount of heat, it was great! I’m thinking about possibly adding some red pepper flakes next time & possibly trying it with some Mexican cornbread for a little more kick. Wonderful recipe & highly recommended!

  4. This is one of the finest recipes I have ever cooked. In these cold winters we have here in Pennsylvania every one is looking for a soup to warm them up. We make a number of soups every year but we made this one this year. It was almost impossible to keep every one full of this soup. Everyone love it and keep coming back for 2nds and 3rds but we never run out. Everyone said this was the finest soup they had ever eaten. Thank you for your RECIPE and from all the people that we feed they ABSOLUTELY love it.

  5. My daughter made a vegetarian version of this recipe for me and it was still delicious!

  6. Can you make the soup without the turkey?

  7. How much Cajun Season do I use if I don’t have the Season Packet from the Beans

  8. Would have loved to try this recipe but have beans on hand and Cajun spice on hand would have liked an alternative to going out and BUYING the product you’re promoting.

  9. How spicy is this recipe? I’m super sensitive to spicy, but this recipe sounds amazing!!!

  10. This was very good but I used crushed instead of diced tomatoes – mistake but still tasty and filling.  I will make this again soon.
