I know I already have a chicken tortilla soup recipe posted on here. However, I saw this one on Blogger Buffet. I mean, it's made in the crock pot. Anytime I Real Mom Kitchen Real recipes for really busy families.
I wanted a quick fix meal and opted for canned cannellini beans. Sometimes you just don't want to presoak beans or simmer them for an hour. And instead of using the traditional pancetta or ham, I replaced it with healthier ground turkey. It's a super simple recipe that can be made in thirty minutes or less.
You will not believe the deeply satisfying flavour of this stew. This is our favourite wintry stew dish - comfort food to the max. The cooking time is more or less accurate, but it really depends on the cut of meat used - not everyone used chuck, and then, not all chuck is the same! You really have to poke and prod and taste to get it to where you want it...but that's what cooking is all about, isn't it? ;-)
This is a chowder that uses ingredients that I almost always have on hand, so it is quick and easy to throw together before work, and come home to on a nice fall evening. Relatively easy to double as well for extra large families or get togethers.
Some days you just need a slow cooker meal...! Love soups and was looking for something a little different. If you have an open jar or packet of thai curry paste in your fridge, and you like the flavour of it, this is another way to enjoy it. Most of the items are pantry staples, which is how this came to be, and it's fairly low calorie/low fat. I made it to fit a small crock pot (2.5 Q I think)....yields enough for 2 good sized portions. If you use a larger crock pot you would probably have to double the recipe. Some flat bread on the side makes it a meal.
