This was a quick recipe suitable for a week night. However, I think this might have been a good recipe for the slow cooker so the beans could soften more. It was served with grilled cheese sandwiches.

This was okay, but not something I'd bother to make again. It was kind of like baked beans soup.

This is definitely in the "has potential" category, which I realized by substituting a fully flavored vegetable stock (Imagine brand) for the water (yuck-water in soup?) and fire roasted tomatoes. I also sauteed finely chopped onion, carrot, and celery in the bacon fat before adding the beans and liquid. Finally, I simmered this with the lid on for 90 minutes and pureed a cup of it & added the puree back to the pot. Now we're talking! Served with cole slaw and B&M Brown Bread slices.
