Inspired by. . . comfort food

Cold winter days just beg for a bowl of hot soup!

This crockpot recipe, with a prep time of 15 minutes, means you'll be out the door faster in the morning, and have a delicious, hot dinner waiting for you when you return home!

  1. Looks like dinner for Monday to me! Thanks! Love this type of soup and I need a crock pot dish! Sweet.

  2. It looks wonderful. I might try this, I have seen recipes before and been reluctant to try it. I dont know why because I love taco's and enchilada's and so on. I should try it at least once I don't want to miss out and it does look sooooo good

  3. Oh man, the flavors in this look great!

  4. Stopping in from Pantry Party. Great soup! Loving the sour cream on top--that hot/cold contrast thing! I'm really trying to use my crock pot more often. Thanks for sharing.
