I had made some chili a while back and had found a can of a variety of beens in the canned veggy aisle.
For the life of me, I cannot find that can again. The chili was a hit.
Pintos are my favorite, almost always have some around...
Here ya go.
7 Bean soup with Ham and Potato
1 (20 ounce) package 7 bean mixture, soaked overnight
1 ham bone
2 1/2 cups cubed ham
1 large potato diced
1 large onion, chopped
3 stalks celery, chopped
5 large carrots, chopped
1 can diced tomatoes, with liquid
1 can of V8
3 cups vegetable broth or water
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon chili powder
3 bay leaves
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon dried parsley
3 tablespoons lemon juice
4 cans chicken broth
1 teaspoon kosher salt
Place the soaked beans into a large pot and fill with enough water to cover by about 1 inch. Bring to a boil, then simmer over low for 30 minutes. Drain. Add the ham bone, ham, onion, celery, carrots, potatoes, tomatoes, vegetable juice, and vegetable broth. Season with Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, chili powder, bay leaves, pepper, parsley and lemon juice. Pour in enough of the chicken broth to cover the ingredients.
2. Simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally, for about 8 hours. Add more chicken broth as needed throughout the day. Remove the ham bone and season with salt if needed. Continue to simmer for a couple more hours. Remove bay leaves before serving.
This a great fall or winter dish. Warms you straight through your soul.
