I love soup, yes it is considered a “slider food” according to my surgeon and therefore a NO NO, but I make mine good and hearty ,more like a stew so that qualifies it as a meal! Nothing beats coming home from a coldy rainy day and finding this lil gem bubbling away in the crock pot! I love my crockpot and will post many a recipe for it in the future! For this lovely soup I do this-
1 package of lean ground beef, frozen right from the freezer(or vegetarian substitute)
1 can of mixed beans(kidney,chickpea etc) rinsed well
1 cup frozen corn
handful of chopped baby carrots
2- 28 oz cans of tomatoes (diced, chopped ,seasoned whatever)
and then taco seasoning , you can use a packet of pre mix but I make my own with a blend of cayenne, cumin,chili powder.
Throw it all in the crock and let it cook on low all day long. The meat is very tender and not chewy! I like to top mine with crushed tortillas that were baked in oven,or just corn chips if you prefer, a dollop of sour cream and shredded cheddar! Taco’s in a bowl! HEAVEN!!!
