Cajun Ham and Beans

A great change from regular ham and beans. Cook this all day in the slow cooker and come home to a delicious meal!
Author Jamie


  • 1 bag Hurst's Cajun 15 Bean Soup
  • 1-2 cups chopped ham
  • 8 + cups of water


  1. The night before you plan to make this meal you want to soak your beans. Take a medium sized pot and put the beans in it. Set the Cajun seasoning packet aside. Cover the beans with water allowing for several inches of water to be above the layer of beans.
  2. The next morning drain all the water off the beans and place the beans in a large slow cooker.
  3. Add the ham and the seasoning packet to the slow cooker.
  4. Add about 8 cups of water to the slow cooker. You want plenty of water especially if you won't be home to check on the beans during the day. The water should completely cover the ingredients with a couple of extra inches.
  5. Cook this on low for 6-8 hours or until the beans are soft and ready to eat.
  6. You can add extra salt and pepper to taste.
  7. This is great served over rice or with cornbread.

Recipe Notes

Edible beans are a raw agricultural product. Always be sure to check for any debris or rocks in your bags of beans before eating!
This makes a large crock pot of soup!
