Soup and Stew Recipes To Make in Your Crock Pot or Slow Cooker

I am a soup eater! I love soup and I enjoy it year round no matter the weather. I can enjoy a bowl of chili in a hot Texas day. However, I do know that many of you only prefer soup in the colder weather. Since we will soon be heading into the cooler days of the Fall season here in America, I thought I would bring out some delicious soup recipes you can make in your slow cooker or crockpot. So tasty! The Tortilla Soup does not contain meat. If you want, you can add some cooked, shredded chicken. The Bean Soup lists beans to be used but others may be substituted.

MEXICAN CLASSIC TORTILLA SOUP
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 medium onion, chopped
1 tsp bottled hot sauce
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
2 cans (8-oz each) tomato sauce
4 cups chicken broth
2 limes, cut into wedges
1 ripe avocado, cut into bite-sized pieces
6 oz crumbly fresh cheese, such as feta
tortilla chips, crumbled for garnish

Combine the garlic, onion, hot sauce, peppers, tomato sauce, and chicken broth in a crockpot or slow cooker. Cover and cook on low 4 to 6 hours or on high for 2 to 3 hours.

To serve ladle the soup into serving bowls and squeeze lime wedges into each bowl. Top with the fresh avocado, cheese, and crumbled chips.

Yield: 6 servings

QUILTER'S CALICO BEAN SOUP
1/2 cup dry navy beans
1/2 cup dry black beans
1/2 cup dry lima beans
1/2 cup dry garbanzo beans
1/2 cup dry split peas
6 cups water
2 cups chopped ham
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped carrot
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 bay leaves
6 cups water

Rinse and drain all the beans.

In a large pot, combine the beans with the first 6 cups of water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, simmer 10 minutes, uncovered. Drain and rinse.

In a crockpot or slow cooker combine the beans, ham, onion, carrot, basil, oregano, salt, pepper, bay leaves, and the second 6 cups of water. Place lid on cooker and cook 8 to 10 hours on low or 4 to 5 hours on high.

Note: 2 1/2 cups of any combination of dried beans may be used rather than the ones listed above.

Enjoy!
