Crock Pot Dried Bean Soups
I love making crock pot soup recipes with dried beans. Crock Pot dried bean soups are one of my favorite meals. I eat them all year long.

You don't have to fuss with soaking and rinsing or prepping the dried beans by doing a quick boil on the stove.

I made homemade mini pork and beef meatballs for this Crock Pot Italian Bean Meatball Soup recipe. I love making homemade meatballs because they taste so much better than frozen meatballs.
But, if you need to you can substitute frozen meatballs for the homemade pork and beef meatballs I used in this recipe.

NOTE: If using frozen meatballs thaw them in the microwave before adding them to the hot soup in the crock pot.
