“This soup is simple, comforting and inexpensive. I make mine with homemade chili powder made from dried habaneros so mine is pretty spicy - if you are using a milder chili powder you might consider adding additonal cayenne pepper. You can also substitute cajun seasoning for the chili powder. You could also do this on the stovetop - just brown the hamburger add all the rest of the ingredients and simmer until the beans are tender.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown the hamburger meat, drain the fat and place the meat into a slow cooker.
  2. Add the beans, seasonings and broth. (You can soak the beans before if desired - I never do!).
  3. Cook on low for around 8 hours or until the beans are tender, adding water or additional broth as needed. I usually need to add about 2 cups of water as the beans cook and soak up the liquid.
