Instructions
  1. Gather all of the ingredients together, open the cans and drain all but the tomatoes. Turn the slow cooker on high and add the ground beef making sure to break up over the bottom of the slow cooker. Cover so that it can adequately come to temperature and cook the beef. Stirring occasionally until browned.
  2. Add onions, taco seasoning, and all cans of drained beans to the browned beef.
  3. Pour beef broth over beef and bean mixture.
  4. Now comes the tomatoes and the corn...it's going to be a fiesta in this slow cooker!
  5. Mix well. Cover and continue cooking on high for 3-4 hours. Stirring occasionally. Shred some cheese. Chop some cilantro to pile on top with a dollop of Greek yogurt. (Sour cream works as well). Serve with tortilla chips or cornbread.

For the love of Tomato Basil Soup

Tomato Basil Soup is one of my favorites from the restaurant  La Madeliene. The family and I would go there and enjoy their soup often. One day, many years ago…I decided to look for a copy cat recipe online so that I could make it anytime that we wanted. Bingo!

I’m going to share the link to which recipe I found and give a few pointers of what I do to make it “extra” tasty. Here is the link that I found via www.food.com.

It is simple and easy with only a few ingredients. Just what we like, right? And not much improvement needed…if at all. But everyone likes to tweak things to their own taste buds.

Here is what I do:

  • 2- 28 ounce cans crushed tomatoes
  • 4 cups V-8 juice
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 can broth (chicken or vegetable)
  • 1- juice of lemon
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 20 leaves of fresh basil- at least! LOL
  • garnish with shredded parmesan and a side of hot crusty bread.

Throw it all into the slow cooker on high heat for about an hour. The soup should be slowly simmering. Blend with hand blender until smoothed. Continue to cook on low in the slow cooker for another hour. Stirring occasionally Keep on warm until ready to serve.
