Super Easy and Delicious Ham and Bean Crockpot Soup

We baked a ham the other night and had a ton of leftovers. We discussed different ways to use it up and ham and bean soup sounded like a winner.  However, I was not going to the store to buy anything new and I wasn't going to slave over a stove to make it.  To the crock pot I went. I used this recipe from simply recipes as a guide and I'm stealing their photo because their soup looked waaay prettier than mine.  But mine tasted daaaaayum good!

- 1 cup chopped carrots
- 1 cup chopped celery
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1 cup diced potatoes
- 2 cups cooked ham
- 3 cups chicken broth
- 1 can white kidney beans
- 1 can pinto beans
thyme, salt, pepper and parsley

I cooked it on low for 7 hours and it was delicious!  The only thing I would do different is probably make more!! And add more ham.  I totally could have added another cup and adjusted maybe another cup of chicken broth in.  So delicious!

What do you do with ham leftovers?
