    Here's a good soup - VERY fast and easy. It tastes better than it looks and sounds. It calls for a certain brand that I ignore and use my favorites.

    1 can Best Choice chunk chicken breast
    1 can Best Choice corn, drained
    1 can Best Choice Chicken broth

    1 can Best Choice Red Enchilada sauce
    1 packet Best Choice Taco seasoning
    1 can Best Choice drained Kidney Beans
    1 can Best Choice drained black beans
    Throw all in crockpot cook on low 4 hours.
    Serve w/ shredded cheese, sour cream &

    Wow Jingle all of those sound amazing. Nice and hearty. I normally am not a big soup fan but I love the thick hearty kinds. I make my mother's great northern bean soup with chunks of polish sausage. I don't have a set recipe I just know how much of what goes in. Not made the same every time but just as delicious. As I get older and cook more I realize I am getting better at it and experimenting more.

    I do have one that I like and have been using recently.

    Slow Cooker- 6 quart or larger
    1 lb. ground beef
    1 cup white onion, diced
    tsp. salt
    tsp. pepper
    tsp. garlic powder
    21.5 oz. cream of mushroom soup (two 10.75 oz. cans) do not add water
    15.25 oz. can corn, drain well
    1 lbs. russet potatoes (about 5 cups diced, cut into SMALL 1/2 inch cubes)

    2 cups shredded sharp cheese, divided


    • Brown the beef and onion together in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Drain the fat.
    • Wash and dry the potatoes. Cut them into cubes, leave the skin on. Add the potatoes to the slow cooker. Pour over the meat and onion into the slow cooker. Add the soup, salt, pepper, garlic powder, corn and half of the cheese. Stir. Spread out the hash into a flat layer.
    • Cover and cook on LOW for 5 hours without opening the lid during the cooking time.
    • Add the remaining shredded cheese evenly over the hash. Cover and let the cheese melt for about 10 minutes.

    I Guess it is more like a stew type dish, is very rich.

    Right now vegetable beef soup is bubbling on the stove -- I haven't tasted it yet. I haven't made that soup with ground beef in 20 - 25 years! I've always used a chopped up beef roast and home made broth so this with hamburger and canned broth is a big deal. Wish me luck.
