This soup recipe is my favorite soup to make in my slow cooker. I just love how the house smells when I open the door and smell the aromatic tex mex flavors.
I always serve my soup with some crusty french bread, and some tex mex seasonings mixed with olive oil for dipping. There is nothing better than a freshly baked loaf of french bread.
If you want to get extra fancy you could serve a salad on the side and voila you’ve got a full meal that is bound to please your entire family.
This Crock Pot soup recipe is really a family favorite in our household. We take a yearly entire family trip and while on that trip each mom takes a turn making dinner. This is the dinner that my family begs me to make as my meal.
I don’t mind making it because it’s so simple to just dump into the slow cooker and go. All you need to do is cook up some fresh cooked Basmati rice and then dinner is ready to go.
