I have no idea where my mother got this recipe for soup but I got it from her and made it last night. It’s REALLY yummy and REALLY easy. I have a hard time going online to like foodnetwork.com and finding a new recipe that’s actually easy and doesn’t require crazy ingredients I’ve never heard of. So if you feel me on that note you might like this easy to do soup I learned from my mommy.
So it’s Chicken and Vegetable Soup actually quite healthy too 😉
Rotiserie Chicken Original (Publix 😉 )
1 Can of original Rotel tomatoes and green chiles
1 can of diced tomatoes
Corn (you can do a can or I prefer cutting it straight off the cob, 3 ears, yummy!)
4 carrots peeled and chopped
1 Sweet Onion chopped
Optional: chopped up celery. I didn’t do this though.
1 can of beans, I used great northern
1 cup of original spaghetti sauce
1 1/2 to 2 cups of water
Basically what I did, and M even helped me, was I through everything in the crock pot. Peeled the chicken into small pieces. My mom suggested sauteing the O and microwave the carrots but I skipped those parts and literally just through EVERYTHING into the crock pot. Nice bite size pieces. And I started cooking it on high for about an hour and then switched it to low for about 2 hours. It was delicious and I imagine you could do it in a pot on the stove as well if you don’t have a crock pot. But M helped me by pouring the canned veges and the ones I chopped into the pot and stirring it up. She really enjoyed it and though she already loved this soup from eating it so much when we lived with NeeNa and Popi I think she was even more excited to eat it when I emphasized that she cooked it. 😉 Just a little tip to maybe get your kiddos to eat good food.
And that’s it. No crazy seasoning, no other weird ingredients or prepping, it took me like maybe 25 minutes to get everything chopped and in the pot. And that was working with a 3 yr old as well. So I just think this is a great healthy meal for the fam and the mom with the crazy kids running her life, lol.
