Soup's On!

I love so many things about fall that it would take too long to mention them all. One is that it's soup weather. And sweater weather. And boot weather. And the gorgeous leaves, pumpkins, and cooler temperatures. Oh, my. What's not to like?

I thought I'd share my favorite fall soup--Southwestern Bean Soup. It's so easy and delicious. If you can open cans and a jar, you can make this soup!


SOUTHWESTERN BEAN SOUP

1 19 oz. can Black Bean Soup (not drained)
2 15 oz. cans Red Kidney Beans, drained
2 15 oz. cans Navy Beans, drained
1 16 oz. jar Chunky Salsa (mild or medium)
1/2 cup Red Wine Vinegar
Small can chopped mild Green Chiles, drained

Spray a slow cooker with cooking spray and pour the beans, salsa and vinegar into the crock pot. Stir until well blended. Cook on low for 6-7 hours. This makes 8-10 servings and freezes well.

Serve with cornbread or salad. Also good with condiments like salsa, guacamole, sour cream and chips.

Enjoy and let me know if you tried it. Also, feel free to post your favorite soup in the comments section.

    1. It is easy and good! Sometimes before I microwave it, I'll add a tablespoon of water if it looks a little dry.

    1. Yay! That's the hardest part, Lisa. The grocery store constantly moves the black beans from the soup section to the Mexican food, and finally, I found some by all of the other beans, which is where they should be!

    1. You'll like it if you like beans, Shirley. Don't forget the red wine vinegar. It makes all the difference (that and the salsa!) Enjoy. It's so easy and makes a LOT.

  10. Mmm . . . sounds good. Connie soaked a bunch of dried beans and spent all day yesterday canning them in jars. She put up a variety of different flavors, so we're all set heading into winter. This recipe sounds great. All I need now is a slab of cornbread and a chunk of raw onion.

    1. You would make my dad's heart swell with that cornbread and raw onion along with the beans. I love that stuff, too. My NJ husband had never eaten such until he moved to MO and still doesn't like it. Crazy man.

    2. And this is MUCH easier than soaking and canning, let me tell you (or tell Connie!)
