Crockpot Ham and Bean Soup

The Best Slow Cooker Ham and Bean Soup. With just a few ingredients needed, this is a comforting full-flavored soup full of protein.

I love these simple Crockpot meals that you can throw together without having to measure and use what you have on hand. Soups are easy that way, using aromatics: Onion, Garlic, Celery, Carrots, whatever spices you have on hand, beans and meat or not.
