Things are starting to heat up now that April is well under way. I got a bit of a sunburn at Legoland earlier this week. Summer approaches!

Warm weather aside, I still have been firing up the crockpot, particularly for those days when we need to be out and about, or when I don’t have time to mess in the kitchen. This chili/soup is packed with flavor, is easy to throw in the slow cooker before you head out, and it tastes great.

This past weekend in between hockey games and errands, I served it with a rich honey cornbread (recipe coming next week) and some cut-up veggies on the side. Some of the fam dolloped it with Greek yogurt; but you could use sour cream as well. It makes for a simple and filling supper that won’t break the bank.

You can make this more like a chili by adding more beans. My family isn’t super big on broth soups, this has just the right texture to please the masses, I think.

Bonus is that is uses regular pantry staples and can be frozen for another time. Make a double batch and freeze half so you have easy lunches and dinners in the busy weeks ahead.

  1. Yum!
    Just wanted to say I loved you on Coffee Table Conversations (even though you didn’t sound like I thought you would, lol). That was a great show. Loved that bundle from start to finish.
    Have a great weekend, Jessica.

    • Well, now I’m curious what you expected. 🙂 Stephanie had warned me I’d need to be pushy to get a word in edgewise, but I think I was too pushy. So glad you enjoyed the bundle. That’s great to hear!

      • LOL, I always read your blog with a “husky” voice – think old-time movie star with a long cigarette. When you didn’t have *that* voice, I had to adjust. LOL

        No, I didn’t think you were pushy at all – I like it when they address a specific question to a specific panelist, bc no one ever knows when to talk and then everyone talks at once: “Sorry. You go.” “No. You go.”

        It was great and one I plan to listen to again.

    What is the purpose for the potatoes? To thicken the soup perhaps? I love and follow both of your blogs faithfully! Thank you for all the wonderful recipes!

  3. G’day! Nothing like chili on a warm winter’s day!
    Cheers! Joanne

    Hey there ~ just wondering if there is a link the taco seasoning recipe or if I’m blind today. Sounds like a great soup for any weather!

    Can you please tell me where you typically find/buy the hominy? thanks! 🙂

    I only have a 1.5 quart cooker. How much would I cut down these measurements to make a couple servings in my cooker?

    • Is that the really small one? Like really small? I guess I would do one can of beans, and 1/4 the rest of the ingredients?
