There’s no question about it it is officially soup season and I couldn’t be happier about that! Soup recipes posted on my blog have been ranking in my top ten most viewed recipes for about the last 2 months nearly every day. I think that says something, we are all obsessed with soup right now. Yay, it’s not just me :)! And not only that but the slow cooker soups are my most popular. This soup is another one you are most definitely going to want to add to your dinner menu rotation. It’s unbelievably easy to prepare, we are talking 15 minutes prep (if that), and it’s incredibly delicious!
I made this soup, multiplied by three, to serve to family I had staying last week over the holiday. It was the night before Thanksgiving and that morning I knew I needed something quick and easy to serve everyone because I was starting the Thanksgiving cooking that day. I’m happy to say everyone loved it, of course myself included!
This is an adaption of an old recipe I have posted on here, I just changed it up a bit and added more fillers. This is one incredibly hearty, feel good soup. If you opt to leave out the cheese, sour cream and chips you’d also have one amazingly healthy dinner (but doesn’t that just sound crazy to leave out all the good stuff?).
I’m pretty sure I will be making this soup at least once every other week during this cold season and I have the feeling you’ll want to too!
