Slow Cooker Chicken & Smoked Sausage Bean Soup

When the cool summer breezes give way to chilly autumn winds that send leaves swirling across the yard underfoot and clouds scudding through the sky overhead, it is soup season, and we are already enjoying the process of simmering homemade soups that are chocked with hearty flavors. I made a wonderful slow cooker version of Chicken & Smoked Sausage Bean Soup. So easy to make, and so very good, too! We made a big batch and have enjoyed the leftovers just as much; there will be nothing going to waste with this recipe!
