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!
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.
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 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.
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!
