Even folks who say they don't like lima beans tend to like this tasty soup. (Wonder if the bacon and turkey smoked sausage have anything to do with that?)

  • Place beans in large heavy saucepan. Add enough water to cover. Bring to boil. Cook on medium-low heat 2-1/2 hours or until beans are tender.
  • Cook bacon in large skillet on medium heat just until crispy, turning frequently. Drain on paper towels, reserving drippings in skillet; crumble bacon.
  • Add bacon, corn, sausage and onion to beans in saucepan. Reduce heat to low; simmer 1 hour.
  • Stir flour into reserved bacon drippings in skillet. Cook on medium-low heat until bubbly, stirring frequently. Gradually stir in 1-1/2 cups water until well blended. Cook on medium heat until mixture boils and thickens, stirring constantly. Add to soup; simmer 30 minutes. Season to taste with pepper.


Substitute OSCAR MAYER Turkey Bacon for OSCAR MAYER Lower Sodium Bacon.


To reduce cooking time, use frozen lima beans instead of dried. Omit the initial 2-1/2 hour cook time. Add 3 pkg. (10 oz. each) frozen lima beans (about 6 cups) and 6 cups water to bacon mixture in saucepan. Continue as directed.

    I took a wrong turn somewhere and ruined this meal. Ended up being extremely bland and chalky.
