Creamy Black Bean Chicken Soup

72

This soup is quite similar to the Slow Cooker Enchilada Soup that I posted about a few weeks ago (about which I’ve gotten great reviews – thanks, guys!), but it’s just different enough and just good enough that it’s worth sharing, too! We had this at Happy Hour last night and my Crockpot was scraped […]

Pumpkin Black Bean Chili

73

This chili was a little bit of a leap of faith for me since it prominently features two flavors that I’m not typically wild about: pumpkin and parsley. However, I was feeling adventurous and wanted to celebrate some fall flavors. Plus, I was feeding it to a crowd, so there were good odds that I […]

Slow-Cooker Chili

Serving slow-cooker chili to guests (along with chips and salsa and margaritas — what a perfect meal for a 0-degree day!) almost seems like cheating. You throw everything in the pot and, viola! dinner is ready when the guests show up. Just be sure you have cheese and tequila on hand.

Butternut Squash Soup in the Crockpot

“You have a food blog?”  Yes, and I start updating it, and then I get pregnant and stop cooking due to nonstop vomiting, and then it’s summer (too hot for most soup), and then I’m busy with a newborn/toddler. Rinse and repeat. But, I made soup today, and I’m delighted to share it with you. […]

Salsa Chicken and Black Bean Soup

85

I alluded to this recipe the other day, but here it is in full: Salsa Chicken and Black Bean Soup. I’d recommend making this soup “by the book” (if it can be “by the book,” given that it comes from the Internets) the first time, and then you can play around with it after that. […]
