Tips: This beef and bean soup was filling and tasty. I know you might not think soup in the summer but a crock pot meal keeps your oven off. Also, we like to make soups or stews early in the week and take the leftovers camping with us over the weekend. I also shared this recipe at Life as MOM's Ultimate Recipe Swap.
