Have you ever used cranberry beans in a recipe? I know they aren’t all that common, but man oh man let me tell you they make a mighty fine soup. They have a rich chestnut flavor that I love.
I gifted some cranberry beans a while back and threw some ingredients into a crock pot last night for one freakin awesome soup. If this is your first time using cranberry beans, let it be in this recipe!!Print
1–2 boneless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
1 medium onion, chopped
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried cilantro
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup dried cranberry beans soaked overnight
4 cups chicken broth
Toss everything into the crock pot. Cook on low for 4 to 6 hours. Easy peasy. Serve warm with a nice hunk of bread and butter.
