Editor Notes – the soup works well with most pea-sized beans. Pintos and Kidneys are so close, either one or both works. When I make the soup, any beans I have available I will use. Some cooks will use 2 cans each of ranch-style beans, black beans, corn, and hominy. The constants for my soup that I cook always include are the corn and hominy and either the Pintos or Kidneys beans. I have also made it using black eyes peas and black beans.

Members in the Facebook group have posted that they make this soup in a crock-pot. Over medium heat brown the ground beef and onions. Place the ground beef and other ingredients in a slow cooker noting not to drain any of the beans (no black beans). If too thick add 1 cup water. Mix to blend, and cook on low for 4 to 5 hours or on high for 2 to 3 hours. We have had visitors that have said they cook on low for 6 to 8 hours…
