Hell TSKB Readers!
I'd be lying if I said that I was trying to post regularly this week; the whole surgery thing kinda kicked my butt. To top it off, I had an orthodontist appointment yesterday, and he ended up re-opening most of the surgical sites, so I'm back in pain.
Because I knew I would not have any desire to cook, and because I knew I can't eat solid foods for a while, I decided to pull out the crockpot and try something different.
I found this recipe online for Taco soup on Our Best Bites. Easy to follow directions that include a stovetop version and a slow cooker one. I chose the latter.
This makes a LOT of soup. I couldn't even fit in the second can of diced tomatoes or the second can of kidney beans, and mine came out more stew-y and less soup-y.
It was good, but I think next time I'll cut down on the garlic (4 cloves is a lot!) and probably throw some black beans in instead of the corn. However, this soup is great because I made it Wednesday and there's enough to get me through lunches and dinners until Monday.
What things are you looking forward to making in your slow cooker this fall/winter?
