Instructions Checklist

  • Bring chicken stock to a boil in a pot large enough to hold the beans and, eventually, the ham bone. Add the soaked beans; reduce heat and simmer until tender, about 1 hour.

  • Bring stock and beans back to a boil. Add ham bone, onion, carrots, celery, garlic, and bay leaves. Reduce heat to low and simmer until vegetables are soft, about 1 hour. Add chopped ham, liquid smoke, and mustard powder. Stir and let simmer until flavors blend, about 30 minutes more.

  • Remove ham bone from the soup. Season with salt and pepper.

I didn't have liquid smoke but the ham was smoky enough for me. As per the directions on the 13 bean soup bag I added a can of diced tomatoes and some chopped cabbage We loved it!! Read More

This was far better than I even anticipated and will definitely make this again. I used 3 cans of beans instead of dried-red kidney great northern and black and it could have used one more. It was so quick and easy to make as well. Read More

This soup was awesome! The only variation I made was to add 8cups of broth. It was very thick with just the 6. Perfect with the 8. I ll definitely make this again! Read More

My family loved this. It was amazing on a cold day.. It was too watery for what I wanted. I added cornstarch to the broth to make it a little thicker consistency....more like a stew and not like a soup. That was my only change. I would definitely make this again. Read More

Loved it! I didn't add the mustard or liquid smoke it still turned out very tasty. I had the ham bone from Honey Baked ham from Easter so maybe that helped make it very good. I had to boil the beans then soak for an hour before cooking since I forgot to soak them overnight. The beans were perfect. Anyway try this out with your next ham bone. Read More
