"...I’ve been cooking dried beans since I was old enough to reach the stove. I’ve had just about every variety under the sun and I’ve loved them all. So when I tell you this bean soup is one of the best I’ve ever had, that’s saying something!..."
1 20-oz. bag HamBeens® 15 BEAN SOUP®
1 large onion, diced
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
1 teaspoon garlic powder
8 cups chicken broth
2 turkey wings or legs (see notes)
You can use roasted, fried or smoked turkey wings or legs. I used 4.5 lbs of wing sections.
When I say 2 wings, I mean 2 full wings; each including the drummette and the wingette (or 'flat’). Or you could think of it as 4 wing sections. I actually prefer the 2-bone section as it has whiter, more tender meat.
You can also use 4 cups chopped leftover turkey meat instead of the wings or legs. Just stir it in 1-2 hours before the soup is done (don’t let it cook the whole time or it will get dry).
Yes, you can cook this in a crock pot! Cook the same way replacing the 4 hours on the stove with 6 hours on high in the crock pot.
If you can’t find Hurst's 15 BEAN SOUP® in your market, please ask your grocer for them. Until then, you can order them online.
