With the cold wind knocking on my door and windows, it's the time of year for hot delicious soups for the family. And there's no easier way than making bean soup. And the house smells so good and homey when the soup is cooking. I was inspired by Kalyn's post on bean soup, and when I was at the grocery store, I chanced upon this 15-bean packet for chicken, and decided to try it. The beans came with a packet of seasonings that made this soup so convenient. With the help of a pressure cooker, these came out in 1 hour and lunch was ready.
Rinse and soak the 15 variety beans overnight for minimum of 8 hours. Drain the water and place beans in pressure cooker with 2 quarts (8 cups) water, 2 skinless chicken breasts, sliced turkey kielbasa sausage, 1/2 c chopped onions, 1 c carrots, 1 clove minced garlic, 1/2 c chopped celery, and 1/2 c chopped bell peppers.
