Off-The-Shelf Everything Mexican Soup Recipe


January is National Soup Month, and because it’s cold many places during that time, soup is a great idea for lunch and dinner. The problem with making most soup is that there is a lot of chopping, boiling, etc., and for most of us, time is too short to go through that routine. The Solution: Get out the Slow Cooker and fill it with canned foods from the pantry. The following Off-the-Shelf Everything Mexican Soup is slightly spicy, full of fiber, and just plain good. It can be assembled in the slow cooker in less than 15 minutes, and can cook all day or in just a few hours if your slow cooker has a high setting. It includes all of the Mexican ingredients we love: chilies, tomatoes, beans, rice, corn, salsa, and tortillas – Yum!
””
If there’s time, the soup can be topped with grated cheese, crushed tortilla chips, sour cream, green onions, black olives, or whatever is around. Use your biggest slow cooker because this recipe makes 16 generous servings. If you have a small family, it freezes well.
