How-to-Make Sausage and Bean Soup

Soup is one of the easiest things to make, and it's also a great way to use up leftover ingredients. In this particular soup, I used sausage and black eyed peas, but you could easily switch those out for any other type of sausage or bean. It's a hearty, flavorful soup that's perfect for a cold winter night.

Slow cooker sausage and bean soup is easy to make and is perfect for to serve to a crowd or when you just want to bundle up and stay home.

This one has an indulgent, one of a kind flavor and depth of richness because of a secret ingredient in the sauce, Dr. Pepper which I also use to make my family's favorite fall off the bone crockpot ribs.

Add the savory flavor of Smoked Sausage and you have a winner!
