The gift of hospitality sometimes comes with food.
This is simple, easy and yummy. It is a hearty chili-style soup. You can simmer it for a couple of hours on the stovetop, or in the crockpot all day. It freezes well, too!
Sauté chopped onion in a small amount of oil in a large stockpot.
Add carrots and pepper and allow to cook over medium heat until soft.
Stir in remaining ingredients.
Cook on low heat, stirring occasionally.
Serve with sharp cheddar cheese on top and tortillas on the side.
This isn’t fussy and you can compress or stretch the cooking time depending on your day. In a crockpot, this needs to cook on “Low” for at least 6 hours.
