Cabbage and Bacon Crockpot Soup Recipe
I was looking to use up a few grocery items and came up with this crockpot recipe. It was yummy! My six year old (who thinks she is allergic to vegetables) exclaimed after eating it, "Even though it had vegetables, I ate it anyway, and it was good!" I served this soup with buttered toast on the side.
Cabbage and Bacon Soup
1 small head of cabbage
1 bell pepper
1 15 oz can pinto beans - drained
4 thick cut bacon slices - cooked and chopped into small pieces
6 cups water
6 chicken bouillion cubes
Chop vegetables and place in crockpot. Add the beans, water, and bouillion cubes. Stir in the chopped bacon pieces. Optional - to add more bacon flavor, add the leftover bacon drippings as well. Cook in crockpot on high for 5-6 hours.
