One of my favorite things to do, when we travel, is to try out the local food. Every area is different, and one of the recipes we have brought how with us is Beef Southwestern Soup, but I have started making it in the slow cooker!
Slow Cooker Beef Southwestern Soup Recipe (Only 5 Ingredients)
Ok best part? This recipe is only 5 ingredients and takes about 10 minutes to toss together. Add in some Tortilla chips to dip in the soup while you eat and you are ready to go. My family loves adding some sour cream to the top of the soup when it's served and also some cheese. Hubby and I fight over using mild or spicy salsa, but it is absolutely your choice.
Personally, I like getting the recipe together and setting it in the stoneware in the fridge overnight. Then I can take it out and set the slow cooker to cook the next morning and by dinner time I have a great dinner, and the only work I have to do is to open the bag of chips.
