White Walkers got you down? The Wall giving you the shivers? Winter coming? Well, fear not. Three bean soup is here!

I haven’t posted anything for the cooking/baking category since my monster cake back in April, so I thought I’d share a little recipe I made up that yielded some damn fine soup. It’s really good for a rainy/cold day because it’s got a spicy broth. Might I recommend watching some wintery scenes in Game of Thrones while eating this? I think they pair quite nicely. Mr. Ice Beard here agrees.

What you’ll need:

  • 2 tbsp Chili powder
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 2 tsp Pepper
  • 1 tbsp Minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Can pinto beans
  • 1 Can kidney beans
  • 1 Can white beans
  • 1 Jalapeno
  • 2 Cans of diced tomatoes
  • 1 Red bell pepper
  • 1 Red onion
  • 1 Yellow onion
  • 1lb Ground turkey


  1. Start by dicing small/medium red onion and yellow onion.
  2. Remove seeds from red bell pepper and jalepeno, and dice as well.
  3. Heat olive oil in skillet and add ground turkey.
  4. When ground turkey is about halfway cooked, add the diced onions and peppers.
  5. When ground turkey is browned, reduce heat to low as to keep it warm.
  6. Meanwhile, fill and heat up a crockpot with cans of tomatoes and one can-worth of water, seasonings, and garlic.
  7. Drain and rinse all three cans of beans.
  8. When tomato broth-mixture is warm, add beans and contents of skillet.
  9. Let crockpot sit covered on low for 8 hours. (I work the night shift and sleep during the day, so I like to use the slow-cooking function so that I can sleep and just wake up to yummy smells.)
  10. Serve and enjoy!


Obviously you could do a lot with this recipe in terms of substitution. You could use more and/or different kinds of peppers, different meat, a different order of adding the components together, etc. It’s fun to experiment with. If you used tomato paste and no water it could easily become a sort of chili instead of soup.

    Yeah, white walkers are easy to trick. You just spray in some human meat scent substitute in the soup, and they go for it every time.
