Salsa Bean Soup

Cook beans from a bag, follow directions on the back of the bag.  I used a 15 bean variety bag. (you could also use canned beans which would be way quicker, but this way made me feel like I could actually cook without using canned everything!)
I actually didn't do exactly as it directed on the bag, I rinsed the beans really good, then I put the beans in my crockpot around 4 the day before and set it on high until 8 that evening, then I turned it off and let the beans sit overnight.  The next morning the beans were DONE, all I needed to do was add the rest of the ingredients.  I also used half a bag, a whole bag makes A LOT of beans :)  Drain all the water the beans have been sitting in then I added,

(all of these measurements are "about", then I added a little of what I thought it needed until it tasted yummy!)
about 2 cups of salsa
1 tsp. seasoned salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 1/2tsp. celery salt
1 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 cup taco seasoning
and enough water to make it soupy

You can also add ground or meatballed hamburger, turkey or sausage.
Serve with chips or rolls.
Easy, cheap and Yummy!
