WELCOME

Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

MEATLESS TORTILLA SOUP

1 tsp bottled hot sauce
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced

2 limes, cut into wedges
1 ripe avocado, cut into bite-sized pieces
6 oz crumbly fresh cheese, such as feta or shredded cheese of your choice
tortilla chips, crumbled for garnish

Combine the garlic, onion, hot sauce, peppers, tomato sauce, and chicken broth in a crockpot or slow cooker.  Cover and cook on low 4 to 6 hours or on high for 2 to 3 hours.

To serve ladle the soup into serving bowls and squeeze lime wedges into each bowl.  Top with the fresh avocado, cheese, and crumbled chips.
