    Karen From Colorado's Note:

    Comfort food at its best. Many people will tell you to soak your beans first (however, I have been told that you should soak dry beans when using a pressure cooker. Please follow manufactorers instructions in this case). I never do. I just wash them and cook them as below. For a really hearty winter meal, serve these with a loaf of hot fresh bread or a pan of corn bread and a pan of old fashioned crisp fried potatoes. These may also be made in the pressure cooker and crockpot.

      This was fabulous...just what the doctor ordered on a cold day. I used one huge smoked ham hock and a package of boneless country style pork ribs along with the 15 bean mix. I loved the combinations of the meat. I served this with fresh sliced baguettes. Yum

      This is an editited review. I did try the soup with 15 bean soup also. I found the soup even better that way. Karen you are right. Great for lunches and fast dinners. I loved the simple preperation and ingredients.

      So easy and very good! I made this in my crockpot(didn't soak the beans, just washed them and threw them in). I put all the ingredients in my 5qt., filled it with water and cooked in on high for about 6 hours and it came out perfect. I used 2 cups chopped ham, used about 1/4c. minced onions, and 1 Tbsp. garlic salt. I also didn't have any bay leaves on hand, so, I just omitted that. I served this with cornbread that I made the night before, and it was a super easy Sunday lunch that was ready when I walked in the door from church! I will definitely be making this one again! Thanks for posting, Karen!
