Kitty's original 10 bean soup

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 pack (16 oz) 15 or 10 Bean Soup mix; with Cajun Seasoning included
2 \N Ham hocks or 1/2 pound ham steak
1 can (12 oz) beer
2 cups Chopped onions
2 cups Chopped celery
2 \N Cloves garlic; chopped, (up to 4)
1 can Stewed Mexican tomatoes
1 can Diced tomatoes and chilies
1 pounds Hot Polish Sausage
½ pounds Raw; boneless chicken breast

Sort and rinse beans. Combine beans, 7 cups water, beer, ham hocks, seasoning packet in large 6-8 quart pan. Bring to boil and reduce to a rapid simmer. Add chopped onions, celery, garlic and tomatoes to pan.

Simmer, covered, for at least 2 hours. Remove ham meat, chop fine, and add rest of meat, cut into small chunks. Simmer for 1½ hours more until beans are soft.

*My notes: I did not use but about 4 cups of water, as we like it thicker.

And I had to cook it a long time, to get the big beans tender.

Luscious soup.
