Cozy Crockpot Cajun Chicken and Bean Soup

Welcome, I'm preparing a cozy soup dish today. One of my winter favorites. However, it's very hot right now, 100 degree weather in Utah. I am missing my comfort food of winter.


Crockpot Cajun Chicken and bean soup
1/2 to 1 lb Chicken - Cubed - browned
2 cups Anasazi beans - soaked in water overnight
2 tsp. Cajun spice - using a pestle grind to a fine powder
1/2 onion chopped
1 to 2 Jalapeno chopped
3 med Tomatoes chopped
1 bunch Green onions chopped
1 stalk celery sliced
2 carrots sliced
2 cans Chicken Broth
2 cans water

Cut the chicken into cubes and brown. Place all the veggies, liquid and chicken into the crockpot and place in fridge overnight. Soak the beans overnight. In the morning drain and wash the beans and put them in the soup. Cook on low from 6 to 8 hours or high for 4 to 5 hours. Until the beans are tender.

Cajun spice
1/2 cup Chili powder
1/3 cup Kosher salt
1/4 cup Paprika
1 tsp. White pepper
1 Tbsp. Basil
1 Tbsp. Oregano
1 Tbsp. Black Pepper
1 Tbsp. Coriander
1 tbsp. Onion powder
1 Tsp. Cheyenne pepper
2 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp. Cumin
Mix in a mason jar and shake to mix. Use as needed.
Enjoy!

    1. It's not too spicy. However, if you leave the seeds in the Jalapeno's then it's pretty hot. The Cajun spice is between mild and medium.
