A cup of ham and bean soup.

Slow Cooker Cajun Ham and Beans

This year I've come up with a tasty way to use up a bit of the leftover ham that will also feed an army. Did I mention the slow cooker? Nobody wants to spend all weekend cooking a big holiday meal only to turn around and spend the next week in the kitchen trying to use up the leftovers. This is an easy recipe!
