Shane’s Bean Soup

Ingredients:

  • 12-16 oz ham (or 1 lb beef)
  • 4 cups beans
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1/5 cup dried onions
  • 1 Tbsp pepper
  • 2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1-2 quarts tomatoes (or ½ cups tomato powder)

Combine and simmer until for about 30 minutes until done. (If using dry beans cook them until soft before adding the remaining ingredients.

If using hamburger, brown it first and you may wish to substitute chili powder for salt and pepper.

You can add 3 cups macaroni (or any pasta) and enough water (about 3 cups) to re-hydrate it. Add pasta toward the end of the cooking process. It usually takes only 10-15 minutes to cook pasta. Adding pasta will make the dish serve more people. If adding pasta, you may want to add additional seasonings.
