friend makin' monday - soup!

Today for Friend Makin' Monday, Amber is asking us to share our favorite recipes of the winter.

When I think winter food...I think soups!
Baking is actually my ultimate favorite thing to do during the winter (holiday goodies!), but I also like to get warmed up with a yummy bowl of soup.

Here are my top two favorites:
(did I mention they are super easy?!)

Taco Soup

1 pound lean ground beef
2 cups hot water
2 beef bouillon cubes
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can whole kernel corn
1 can kidney beans
4 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon pepper

1. Brown meat. Drain.
2. Dissolve bouillon cubes in hot water (3 minutes in microwave).
3. Put everything into a crockpot and simmer until heated through.
4. Serve with grated cheese, sour cream, and tortilla chips.

Chicken Tortilla Soup

1 can chicken broth
1 can cream of chicken
2 Tablespoons taco seasoning
2 chicken breasts, cooked and cubed
1 can whole kernel corn, drained
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can diced tomatoes
1 small can green chilies

1. Place chicken broth, cream of chicken, and taco seasoning into crockpot. Whisk together until blended.
2. Place everything else into crockpot and stir.
3. Simmer until heated through.
4. Serve with grated cheese, sour cream, and tortilla chips.



There are still 4 days left to show us your
photo projects for this month's craft challenge!

Yummy! Thanks for sharing! My sister really likes Taco Soup...I've never made it though. I usually just stick to plain old veggie soup!
