Pinto Bean Soup with Dry Beans

Another great thing about this Crockpot Express pinto bean soup recipe is it is full of tender vegetables and is a really cheap meal that feeds a lot of people. There was plenty for 6 people and just needed a side of bread for a complete meal.

If you wanted to add meat you could use leftover ham which would taste amazing, or buy some diced ham in the meat section as a yummy addition. Your choice to add or not. I didn’t have any or else I would’ve put it in.

If you’re new to using your Crock Pot Express it is an easy pressure cooker to use. Of course there are many different functions but I use this function the most. Yes you could use leftovers after making Pinto Beans in Crockpot Recipe, and cut down the cook time to just 7 minutes since they’d be tender.

I will explain step by step how to make this healthy soup below, this is what you’ll need to make Crockpot Express pinto bean soup

  1. Pinto beans – dry or canned
  2. Chicken broth – or vegetable broth if you want a vegetarian soup
  3. Vegetables – carrots and celery are great
  4. Onion
  5. Chiles – diced in a can
  6. Spices

Im curious why the onions are sauteed before being added to the soup but the other veggies, especially carrots that take longer to cook, are not? Im making the soup now and I cant wait!

I am confused about this recipe, first it says Crockpot, then it goes on down and says Pressure cooker. There's a difference. I am interested in the Crockpot version.
