Easy Slow Cooker Soups for Your Busy Life Style
After a long day of work, the last thing I want to do when I come home to my apartment is think about is what I have to make for dinner! Luckily I found an amazing book of slow cooker recipes that require little to no prep work. My favorite part about this cookbook is that it also includes yummy desserts and drinks making entertaining a breeze! Slow cookers also take up hardly any cabinet space or counter top space, which is perfect for my apartment kitchen!
A couple favorites at our house are Santa Fe Cheese Soup and Broccoli-Cheese Soup. Simply set it and forget all day while you are at work and these make enough for leftovers the next day!
Santa Fe Cheese Soup:
1 pound Velveeta cheese, cubed
1 pound ground beef, browned and drained
1 can whole kernel corn, with liquid
1 can kidney beans, with liquid
1 can diced tomatoes with green chilies, with liquid
1 can stewed tomatoes, diced, with liquid
1 envelope taco seasoning mix
Everything can be combined in a greased slow cooker (here is mine and I love it!). Just cover and set on low heat for 4 to 5 hours.
My Tips: If you are home and maybe a little crunched for time, you can put the cooker on high heat for 3 hours. This recipe makes 6 to 8 servings and can be served with corn or tortilla chips!
2 packages frozen chopped broccoli
2 cans cheddar cheese soup, condensed
2 cans evaporated milk
¼ cup dried minced onion
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
This recipe can also easily be combined in a greased slow cooker. Cover and set on high heat for 2-3 hours for a quick and delicious dinner.
My Tips: This recipe makes 4 to 6 servings and can be served over a baked potato. It is also amazing with bacon, because who doesn’t love bacon.
Our family loves these quick and easy recipes! Stay tuned for a delicious slow cooker dessert in my next post about apartment home cooking!
