It seems like I never make my soups and chilis the same way twice so here I am sharing yet another version with you. I call this a chili because it’s a little thicker than a soup and also had beans. It super easy to throw together and you could add any number of veggies or beans to customize it. I love the nice juicy chunks of chicken and tomatoes not to mention the crunchy tortilla strips to top it all off.
I always find myself coming back to these types of recipes when I’m feeling too tired to “cook” or make a big mess. It always saves us from going out to eat and they often turn out to be some of our favorite meals.
I think that’s just one of the reasons I love my slow cooker so much. It lets me put together a dinner out of what we have in the fridge and pantry and still feel good about the meal I’m feeding my family.
Plus…I’m pretty much a fan of anything that can be topped off with sour cream and cheese! What’s a favorite meal you’ve made for your family with stuff you’ve had on hand? What do you like to throw in the slow cooker on super busy days?
